From information that I've found on the web, a Berry piano with serial number 10200 ish would have been manufactured between 1904 and 1906. Perhaps the number you quote isn't the serial number.
You probably didn't see the small print at the top of the forum page which says it is not possible to value a piano without inspection.

My Numbers page
explains that most pianos cannot be reliably dated purely on the basis of numbers. Near the bottom of the page I list some Berry numbers in the forty thousand range for that period.
Nobody anywhere can guess the value or condition of a piano without inspecting it on the spot and checking how well it holds in tune, so your local tuner is the best person to ask about that.
