First you need to get the piano examined by a piano technician. You will need to know;

1) whether the piano was restored or rebuilt or whether it is in factory, "as is" condition.
2) the condition of the belly; bridges, soundboard, ribs. You'll want to know about bearing and crown as well as any cracks, especially in the bridge.
3) the condition of the action. If it is all oxodized wood then it will have limited remaining life.
3) the condition of the keyboard, whether it can be restored (ivory only) or recovered with newer material.
4) condition of the plate, whether it is cracked or not.
5) cosmetic condition of the case, top, lyre and legs.

This piano was made in New York City by a firm that was later taken over by Brambach and even later by Kohler and Campbell. But you apparently have an original and authentic Hazelton, for what it's worth. And what is that? Well, either way, even assuming it gets a pretty good bill of health from the technician, it's only worth a few hundred dollars, no more than $1,000.

But, BECAUSE IT IS BIG, and for no other reason, this piano fits into what I have called the "golden age" era of American piano making and is worthy of being turned into something quite a bit better, if you can find the right rebuilder and if you have the money to put into it.

A few pictures of this piano would be helpful too.
