New to the forum, but appreciate any help anyone can offer here...

When we bought our house a little over a year ago it came with a Beckwith upright, serial number 66972. It's in remarkably good exterior shape,never painted, no significant nicks/dings, etc. We've not yet had anyone to look at the "guts". It plays reasonably well aside from needing to be tuned and one hammer that needs to be fixed.

From other posts it would seem that Beckwiths were produced either by or for Sears Roebuck & Co. Is there any other insight we could get with the serial number?

Thanks!
Jeff

Made 1900 By Sears and Roebuck. Grands Had different series of serial numbers. When the spinets and consoles came along they had them made by many other factories.
