SOLD - Art Deco Steinway "Victory" piano - $2750

What can one say? It's a Steinway! Regularly tuned and cared for. Extraordinarily brilliant sound. Serial #315973.

History: Manufactured in New York on April 26, 1944 and was sold on that same day to the War Dept. in Washington D.C. It was then shipped to Transfer Officer, Philadelphia Quartermaster Depot. Very few of these were made (estimated 1000) and their sturdiness made them a perfect instrument to entertain the troops during USO shows on naval ships.
