First Sold in December 1870 in New York City, this Style 1 Steinway is similar to the 1870 Style 2 #24681 loaned to Period Piano Center.  They share the string scale, length, action, Patent Resonator, and  basic cabinet style.   However, the Style 2 has front duplex scaling, while this Style 1 does not.  And the legs, while similar, are slightly different.  Still, these pianos are mostly the same in design.
