Thank you

I recommend you spend some time at www.bluebookofpianos.com. It lists (in the archives section) a lot of information on piano companies, as well as the year of manufacture for various pianos, Lester being one.
***********************************************
LESTER (Betsy Ross)

1948 - 175000 1951 - 209000 1954 - 241000 1958 - 299700
1949 - 181000 1952 - 220000 1956 - 272000 1959 - 308800
1950 - 193000 1953 - 231000 1957 - 280000 1960 - 324400
************************************************

Also there are sections on how to do a basic 'assessment' yourself, send in the info and they will give an estimate for around $20.00, I think.
