SOURCE: When was the Werner player piano made with serial number 727660 ?

The best way I have found is to get to the back of any of the controls and read the 137 codes. The date will be the next two digits. For example if you read 13762## you know it was made in my favorite year 1962. Year I was born ! Larry

27439 nordheimer by heintzman piano how old is it


    The Nordheimer Piano & Organ Company was established by brothers Samuel and Abraham Nordheimer in 1844. The firm was located at 122 King Street, Toronto. For the first 2 decades, the firm worked as importers and retailers of pianos, organs and melodeons. In about 1866 they built their first pianos with much success. The firm continued to grow and flourish during the rest of the 19th Century, building a full line of uprights, squares, and reed organs. In 1886, The Nordheimer Brothers went into partnership with Gerhard Heintzman of Toronto and opened the Lansdowne Piano Company, Ltd. In 1890, Nordheimer built a new, state-of-the-art factory in East Toronto. In 1927, Heintzman purchased the Nordheimer name and continued to produce Nordheimer pianos until the 1960's.
    It would appear your serial number relates to the years between 1931>1932...

Answer
Hi Robyn:
serial 10305
This was one of the original pianos made by this company in 1904. The serial number is the determining factor in telling a piano's age.

The worth rests on the piano's viability, configuration, and age.

Old uprights are generally worth little, especially if they are not serviceable. The furniture value is secondary.

If your piano is in perfect condition, inside and out, the value would top out around 200.00, USD.

What you have there is a typical upright piano, which more than likely has more furniture value than instrument value.

Age is not good in the piano world and pianos deteriorate year by year whether they are played or not.

Are you using this piece as furniture, or instrument?

What is the estimated value of a milton upright piano serial number 51839


Milton Piano
From http://antiquepianoshop.com/online-museum/milton/ :
The Milton Piano Company was established in New York in 1892. In the early 20th Century they offered a full line of uprights, player pianos, and grand pianos, and they enjoyed a reputation of building very well made instruments. In the mid 1920s, Milton built a coveted new state-of-the-art factory on West 51st Street, New York City. There is some evidence that Brambach and Milton were somehow affiliated with one another, and their factories were located within blocks of each other. The Milton Piano Company built pianos until the late 1950s era.
From http://bluebookofpianos.com/agesm.htm#MILTON :
This name is a familiar one to the magical world generally. Milton pianos have been manufactured for many years and always with the care that produces most satisfactory results. The modern factories in which the Milton piano is produced are new, large structures located at 626-630 West 51st St., New York City. Milton pianos and player-pianos are thoroughly well-made, beautiful instruments, designed for a class of discriminating music lovers. They possess a tone at once powerful and sweet. They are pianos in which purchasers are assured good values and they are pianos that give exceptional satisfaction. Milton reproducing pianos are equally representative and popular.
All of which is great, but:
Be aware when dealing with antique pianos:
Many of the old (say, 1850 to 1940) pianos were made by companies that are no longer in business (failed, or bought out by a competitor), or companies that built the instrument under another name.
Pianos back then were not really mass-produced, they were hand crafted- and each manufacturer made their piano very differently, so:
Short Version: there will be parts that will work on only that *one* model of piano, so getting parts will be difficult if not impossible.
Long Version: Musical instrument craftsmen (craftspersons?) love to innovate, for a variety of reasons: they may find a new way, for instance, to connect the key to the hammer that strikes the corresponding note. It might be a better way to do it, or, more often, it was to come up with a cheaper way to do it.
The point I'm making is that your Struz Brothers piano will have parts that are totally different from, say, a piano made by either Krakauer Brothers, Doll, Jacob & Sons, or Mathushek & Son Piano Company (companies that started around the same time as Sturz Brothers). The parts may vary from one year to the next, or even one model to another.
So, if your Sturz Brothers piano needs a key replaced, or the harp has bent under pressure, the soundboard is cracked, or any number of things that can plague an old instrument, you'll need to either
A) find someone that is willing to sell parts from a similar model (if they're parting it out, it has more problems than yours does), OR
B) you'll need to have the part manufactured from scratch by craftsmen that specialize is rejuvenating old pianos. This will be expensive far, far beyond what the piano is worth- and these craftsmen live very well, BTW...
Last Caveat: Upright models sell for much less (and the term "Upright Grand" was just an advertising phrase, there is no such animal.) Uprights (spinets particularly) sound very... tinny, is the best description I can think of. Tinny like the toy piano your granma gave you when you were five- remember, the black keys were painted on? Tinny like that.
So, unless the piano is a Steinway & Sons, a B?sendorfer, or a Fazioli, don't count on huge offers for your instrument. And if it came to you from your great-aunt Tilly and you can't bear to part with it, that's great, I understand sentimental value. Just know that this will cost a great deal to bring to playing condition.
I'm often told "But the keys all work, the pedals are still tight, and the tuner told me that it's not a bad piano!" All this is true. But please remember that professional buyers know all of these potential pitfalls won't offer much, and the guy on Craigslist that needs to replace the piano for Great-Aunt Tilly can't afford much.
Good luck!

I was given an upright piano made by Sturz bros of ny....the serial number is 7015...can you give me any info on it such as age, value, and any history on it at all?


Warning: Very long-winded reply approaching.

Sturz Brothers pianos were established in New York state in 1871, and seem to have the reputation as "[Sturz Brothers]...pianos and piano-players are distinctly high-grade instruments" (per http://www.bluebookofpianos.com/).
I can't find any information as to when they ended making them.

Piano value by serial number


If your piano was made for the U.S. and is a grand or upright, this serial number would show that this piano came from the mid 70's 1973-77 and was manufactured in Hamamatsu, Japan. You should be able to google your piano from here to find others similar to it to get a price or call your local piano tuner!
