It's a great bargain, even if it isn't actually a portable; in fact, the style was called the "Modernistic" case, and was made with various actions, up to 5 full sets of reeds. This is one size down from the largest action, it would have 4 rows of reeds. The left pedal is actually a crescendo, the right pedal is the swell. It's motor-winded. I would say that this is a very desirable late-model Estey, if you are willing to accept the motor and live within those limitations.
