Hello Everyone! A friend has a Collins-Decker (Collins & Decker) upright piano and I was curious if anyone had any information about this company? I think I've exhausted my internet search on google and yahoo finding mostly information about funerals and a variety of people who can restore them. I will hopefully get the model and serial and year from friend tomorrow. Thanks!

Collins&Decker,Greenville, Texas. That all the Atlas says. No years or serial numbers listed.
That mean it's pretty old I'm sure.

Yeah, Greenville is as much as we know too. Would piano appraisers have a rough time trying to figure out a price for this? With no current or nearly recent models to go from, I don't know how they'd evaluate it fully. Friend is looking to either have a person come and look for themselves or send photos in online.

This is undoubtedly a stencil piano, made for a store in Texas by a manufacturer somewhere else. Old uprights have little value at best, and stencils are pretty much worthless. Sorry.

So then I can tell my friend to do what you see in the movies. Push the piano out of his truck and into a large dumpster at the landfill.

I'll do some more research first, but it may come down to just pitching... a piano.
