I'm hoping you can help me, I'm going to sell an upright piano (probably on ebay) for my boyfriends brother and before i go ahead I'd like to try and find out the approx value/age etc.

I'm not a piano expert ............ I've looked all over the piano and all I can find is

"49599" inside the top bit
"JB" inscribed on the back of the wood
"289A" inside the bottom bit.
The little discs on the front read :-
"Carl Strauss" engraved on the front
"Sveciale Norvegiae/Carolus Rex"
"Goth et Vandal"
"International Invention Exhibition 1887"
"1881 Kra.kau honorib causas"
Can you help me ??

Yours hopefully

Most pianos are worth over 100 US dollars, at least it would be a minimum bid. Someone who sees it's value will keep bidding until they get it. \:D
