I saw a Baldwin L with a simple plain paper sticker that shows the model and serial number instead of those numbers being painted on or stamped onto the plate.
Is that the way Baldwin does those now? It isn’t likely to last very long!

The piano appears to be pretty new.
The paper label sticker shows:

According to what I read here https://www.total-piano-care.com/baldwin-pianos.html, that piano probably was built in 2000.
If that is accurate, the piano would be 21 years old, and it might have been rebuilt? the plate refinished, but for some reason, the SN not painted on it again?

I seem to recall that a Hamilton from the late 1990s that I tuned had a similar label. A Chinese Hamilton that I tuned was a much better build.

My Baldwin R I used to have had that same label. I bought it new in 2000 (serial 369400). The label appeared to have been placed prior to the final clear coat, and seemed to be very well secured.
