Hello, I need some information about a G. Capra & Co. barrel piano
(Ser. No. 565). This is a hand crank unit with a 10 tune barrel. It
has 44 notes, 20 bass (three strings apiece) and 24 treble notes (four
The unit is in working condition and the barrel has been repaired.
Some of the pins had fallen out and they were replaced. This
mechanical piano/w walking carriage was finished in the original red
color and all woodwork has been restored. About the only thing that
hasn't been done is to replace all the strings.
The owner has sold their hold and is looking to sell the unit at a
fair price, but no one seems to have a clue as to what the unit might
be worth. Any information concerning value would be most appreciated.
