Not a great looking instrument but tons of historical/sentimental value - get ready to place your bid (but now is no time to be timid or frugal...):

It will surely be sold for a high figure. By the way, if this is the piano that was played in the movie, it was probably not the piano in the nightclub. The actor who played Sam was a drummer and couldn't play the piano. He just moved his hands, copying the hand movements of the real piano player.

Yes I saw this piano on a British newspaper website the other day. It seems to have less octaves than usual- looks small.
