Haggerty Cook Piano

Hey Everybody,

FYI: I do not play piano but looking for advice

A few years ago, I bought a HC piano and gave it as a gift; it has now come back to me. Apart from the gift thing, I just thought it was a really nice example of an older upright. I would like to keep it.
According to info on the web, HC pianos were manufactured 1910-1920 in Warren, Pa. and had a pretty good reputation. The case(?) is in very good condition but the keys are missing tops, etc.

My question/s: Do I have it tuned and just enjoy it ?(some family members play). Is key top replacement a DIY project, really? Ball park idea of restoration costs? Specifically, key top replacement, cleaning, adjustment, tuning? Does the piano have enough inherent value to warrant spending money on it.

Thanks for any and all input!

With Christ, no weapon formed against me shall prosper
