I also have a  Collard & Collard upright piano with the number 893 stamped on it if I put that number into the site .besbrodepianos.co.uk/pianoserialnumber/collard. htm to find its age it tells me its 1820 or before, however after doing a bit more research the "experts"say that the serial # should be 5-6 digits long and this short number is actually the model number but Im still searching for answers and coming up blank
