Last week I purchased a piano fitting this description at the Salvation Army Store in Springfield, MO for $75:
Huntington piano with a letter on the top inside opening from a Josef P. Szymanski requesting Huntington piano company to build a piano for the Paderewski Signing Society of Chicago, IL. The letter is dated May 13, 1900. There is a picture of Me. Paderewski on the inside, signed by him. The piano is in fair shape and plays very nicely.
Does anyone know the value of this piano, or any of its history?
Thanks,
Jessie
