Schaff bros out of Huntington, Indiana, built this piano about 1907.

Is this piano intended for musical or aesthetic use??

You may have trouble getting your money back if you try to resell it yourself. Especially once you factor in moving.

When you've just purchased something, that's an excellent idea of its value. Pianos don't have "antique" value.
