I have searched for days on the internet trying (unsucessfully) to find information on an old upright piano.
The front says:
Raymond
Cleveland
Cabinet Grand
Does anyone have any information on this piano or any idea where I can find the info?
We got it used approx 30yrs ago.

From the Piano Atlas:

"Raymond, Franklin L., Wilson Ave. E. 55th St. Cleveland Ohio. Est 1872, also made Langdon pianos, name used by Janssen Piano Co. Original owner was O. C. Whitney who manufactures United States organ. F. L. Raymond was taken in to the business in 1886, Mr. Raymond made his first piano."

Yes, it really does read like that.

Serial numbers are listed for years 1900 through 1940, and if you wil post the serial number of your piano I will look up the year it was built for you.

The first number listed for Raymond is #20,000 built in 1900.

This either means that your piano was one of the first they ever built, or the number you found isn't the serial number. Is this number located somewhere near the tuning pins? Are there others?

This # was centered directly above the tuning pins. it was printed exactly: NO 1338
over to the right it says: Raymond Cleveland grand scale.
The only other number we could find anywhere on the piano was:
Improved Sounding board 350
Composition metal plate

Now I am even more curious!

Keep in mind that the overwhelming likelihood is that the piano has no significant value.
