I have a used Starr piano for sale in KC and want to sell it. We bought it in the early 70′s. We were told that it was one of the latest pianos that had the real ivory keys. I want to sell it, and have no clue what to ask. We paid 300 dollars for it in the early 70s. I live in Bloomington, IL and our adult kids took it with them over 10 years ago so the kids could have piano lessons.

We have an Uxbridge Piano with serial number 6062, ivory keys and last tuned in 2003. It belonged to my mother-in-law who taught all my kids how to play. we are not sure of the value, whether to sell or donate to a museum.
