If your reading of the serial number is accurate, Pierce indicates 1895.

The online piano atlas here https://onlinepianoatlas.com/piano-age-calculator/ also dates the piano to be Manufactured: between 1895 - 1900 .

Hope you doing well, rocket88. If I lived closer to your local, I'd pay you for some piano lessons. smile
