Dear Steinway gurus,

Does any of you know this model?


Furthermore can you come up with a solution to the obvious discrepancy of the ebonized serial number, the mahagony case, the late serial number for this tall model (is it perhaps a T ?) and the fact that it "looks" original in terms of the evenly aged finish. The authenticity can probably only be found out if someone can look up the original model number/history (perhaps Bob Snyder?). Could this be a legit instrument factory-converted at a later date? Finally if one were to import this into the US how much would the transport be and would a letter of authenticity from Steinway help or would the rabid US customs extract the ivories and I be sent to Guantanamo bay for my remaining years?

I am responding from my phone and I cannot follow the link from here. I will do so later but as far as ivories are concerned, they will not be allowed through US customs.

If you choose this piano strip off the ivories before shipment.
