If the lowest note is as you describe it then it has suffered some trauma and has been re-constructed but this will not affect the integrity of the rest of the piano.
Any fool can make a piano-- it needs a tuner to put the music in it

M&W would not be responsible at all for the dodgy bottom A key.... probably down to the previous owner or previous to them. I have seen a few pianos with Middle C missing.... usually a divorce case between partners and pay back.
