Hey there guys/gals,

Today I've been delivered a new/used piano. I wanted to know more about it's age/history...

It's a Baldwin Studio Upright almost identical to the one I already have. It's serial is 232414... Someone out there might be able to help me search/learn about the piano!

According to Pierce, if it's a Baldwin upright, it was made in 1969; if it's a Hamilton (identical to the one you already have), it was made in 1966.

Regards,

Cool, yes, it's not a Hamilton but looks the same. The lid is different. My Hamilton you lift the top and then detatch the front panel, but this upright the whole face and top lifts up in one piece. so 1969 eh? summer of love?

Hamiltons had the one-piece front and top for many years.

May had been the summer of love for some folks. I, on the other hand, was going through basic training and wasn't able to touch a piano for more than 10 weeks. grin
