To the dear people with knowledge and access to reference books and such:

I received this console upright years ago at no charge ("just arrange for moving it" type of a deal). I'm just curious of the age and value of this thing - it's got beautiful tone and great action and has been a good friend.

On the inside it says "Conover - Cable Co. Chicago and Oregon Ill." The serial number is 372765.

Thanks for any info on it!

It dates from about 1965, when it would have been an Aeolian American piano. It is nothing special, but it is probably a nice sturdy piano with some more years of service in it. Get it tuned and ask your tuner for more information.
