George steck piano dating
I have been trying to sell it for almost six months.
I'm currently rebuilding a Steck 4'7" which I thought was dated from 1903, but the only number I find on the key bed, the key frame, the key slip and the pedal lyre is 5493.

Trying to fully RESTORE means everything new and top quality.

The Model is GS-42F and the Serial Number is KZ8400.
