A Mozart Piano?

In a somewhat Antique-Roadshow news story, an 18th-century piano, owned by a German instrument builder, may now turn out to be a piano that Mozart played.

Of course, if that turns out to be so, the price that it could fetch will go up, many times.

There's no question of its age, but the Mozart connection remains to be firmly established. See the whole story here.
