I have a Smith & Barnes Mohagoney Cabinet Grand Piano w/ the serial # of 123254. According to the research I did, that would date it back to 1910. Can anyone confirm this? And does anyone have any idea as to the value?

It dates to maybe 1912, and probably has little to no value.

Can you explain why it has no value?

Because there are more people trying to get rid of similar pianos for free than there are people who want them. Because they cost more to bring to a decent standard than it costs for a new piano. I wish it were not that way, but that is the way it is.
