  1. Value Of Piano By Serial Number Generator

The age of your piano is determined by the Serial Number. Pianos also have numbers other than serial numbers, such is the case with part or patent numbers. Some pianos do not have serial numbers when they are manufactured as 'House Brands' for large retailers. For Steinway upright pianos you need to lift the pianos lid and look inside the piano, normally the serial number along with the model will be stamped in ink inside the piano, also on its harp. The piano below dates to circa 1900.

The serial number on YAMAHA GRAND PIANOS is stamped on the gold colored plate located inside the piano as illustrated in the grand piano picture.

The serial number on YAMAHA VERTICAL PIANOS is stamped on the gold colored plate on the inside of the piano as illustrated in the vertical piano picture. The serial number can be seen by opening the toplid of the piano and looking inside.
