Hi,

I have a Kimball upright that was purchased by my parents when I was 3 (around 52-53 years ago). It has a serial number of 148517 and has three panels of roses on vines on the front of it. There is a decal of a columbian expedition inside the case by the top right of the strings. I have been told it's a 1907 or 1917 but I don't remember.

Thanks, Tom

From the data on the site below the serial number would be from about 1905, and the Colombian Exposition prize was awarded in 1893.
