Thanks for your question! Could you tell me what sort of restoration was done? What is the piano only refinished? Or, were the insides fully re-done?

Fully restored inside and out.

Based on your description, I am assuming full restoration, including cosmetic refinishing of all wood, rebuild of the action, restringing, etc. A restoration of this type would cost several thousand dollars. For value reasons, I'm assuming the work was done in the last five years. If it has been more than that, the value would decrease. The "Monarch" line of pianos was a subsidiary line of D.H. Baldwin. They would not be worth as much as a full-fledged Baldwin from that era.

Based on your description of the piano and its condition, I would recommend a current value of approximately $2,000-$3,500 in a private sale. Best wishes!
