Comes with bench (see picture). I have owned this piano since 1979 when I bought it and had it professionally rebuilt and refinished (Marion Frazier, NYC). The manual piano plays OK but has not been tuned for many years. The reproducing system does not play, mainly because the roll motor isn’t working. I believe the roll motor pieces are intact.

Other condition issues:
There is an inlay chip on the music stand due to a screw that is out of line (see picture – inlay shown).
The sliding drawer does not come out completely. This is a recent development and I didn't try to force the issue.
The lyre is attached OK but does not hang properly.
The finish is generally OK with some crackling (see picture). From a distance, the piano looks fine.

The original canvas cover underneath the piano and its snaps, are fine.
A cursory look at the bellows and some tubes, seems that they are OK. Obviously, at 45 years old, some tubes and bellows made need to be replaced.
I am not a piano technician, but the soundboard des not appear to have any cracks. There is dust on the soundboard.

Comes with 30 recut Ampico rolls.
