In most likelihood nothing. While Mason & Reich made a decent piano, uprights of that age are simply too expensive to put into, and maintain in decent condition.

Sorry, Clay, I have to agree with Steve. If you want you can always hire a technician to look at it.

I disagree.

Henry Herbert was very good piano maker and depending on actual condition of the instrument it could very well be worth around Can $ 500-1000 give or take.

I said:

DEPENDING ON CONDITION!

I defer to Norbert. He knows the Canadian market.

Thanks guys. The piano is in really good shape and it sounds great. It has a cast iron base and all of its keys are accounted for. It has a need for a refinishing, but otherwise it is in good condition.

I hope it would be appropriate to resurrect this thread.
Did anyone have any experience with Henry Herbert baby grands by Mason&Risch?
