Hi, we purchased an...

Hi, we purchased an old building and in one of the rooms was a piano. It is stamped Wessell, Nickel and Gross with the date March 20, 1877. I believe that is a patent. It gives a serial number and warranty by Sweetland. We were just trying to find out any info we could on the piano...it’s beautiful!

Expert's Assistant: I love the notion of my brother's old guitar having a history and belonging to someone famous. Maybe you have something valuable or historical. Let's find out. Is there anything else important you think the Musical Instrument Appraiser should know?

We have pictures if needed
