The piano in great conditions. It calls - 'F.Haenel & John Naumburg a/s', inside- 'L.Isermann Hamburg' action, number is- 1802.On the top cover is 2 medals with sign- Fur Gewerbliche Leistungen. I really don't know how old is this piano, it seems to be near 1880-1890 yr and how many money it costs? Just in Internet a few information about this piano.
Thanx for any comments.

The most likely reason no one answered is because no one wanted to have to be the one to tell you the answer to your question. I know that's why I didn't answer you the first time.

Your piano isn't rare, it's just old. It has no antique value, and its value as a viable instrument is near zero. Pianos as old as yours, while it may seem in good condition to you, require total restoration to become a dependable instrument and have any monetary value. The cost of this restoration would be 4 or 5 times as much as the piano would be worth after the work was done. Unless the piano has such tremendous sentimental value that money simply isn't important, it is not worth restoring. Value as it sits is just whatever someone will offer you. Usually you're lucky if someone will agree to take it for free so that you don't have to pay to have it hauled off.

Sorry to have to tell you this, but those are the facts.
