That should be 1938, but there is probably a label on the key-frame. I played one in a local pub, and found that I was playing it on its 80th birthday!

Ooo, older than I thought then; I had a punt at late 50s/early 60s but wasn't sure. I knew you'd know though! I'll have a look at the key frame on my next visit. Ta!

explains that dating pianos purely on the basis of numbers is often not as simple as it seems.
