    There should be a label in the back of it somewhere (if it's an upright). James. M. Starr started the company back in about 1893 or so, so it wouldn't be any older than that. Best to get a piano tuner or appraiser in to check it out.

    Go by the number AND the name. Read the link that will help.

    Cut it open and count its rings. But if that seems too hard, hire a person to do an appraisal.
