The published lists of Rogers' numbers tend to end at 1964, but this number is just after 1973. There are some examples near the bottom of the page at

If you want to search inside the piano for clues, have a look at

Rogers was a good maker, but the modern ones like this were probably made by Kemble. Nobody can guess the value or condition of your piano without inspecting it on the spot.
