Thanks for your patience. Do you have photos that show the inside strings and hammers?

Hi, checking back to see if you got my last message about inside photos?

Musical Instrument Appraiser: Tyler, MM, AAGO, Musician/Appraiser replied 2 months ago
Thanks for the photos!
In checking serial number records for this company I find yours was built in 1907. The photos show a piano which is in original condition and needs cosmetic and mechanical restoration. This would be the case with almost any piano over 100 years old. Because of the condition and the age, the piano will have very little value. Pianos are mechanical instruments so they don’t get an antique value.
Based on these photos and considering the used market, I would recommend a selling range of approximately $50-$200 in a private sale. Best wishes!
Please select a rating before leaving—I aim for five stars! This is how the website credits me, an independent appraiser, for completing this for you. Thanks!
