Probably higher than 440 but possibly not by much however if it is from the first half of the 19th century:

'... We start the 19th century at around 425 Hz, move up to 430, head for 445 around the middle of the century, have a brief flirtation with higher pitches around 1875-85 (or perhaps earlier), then plummet back to pitches around 440.'

Of course the Metzler family did produce instruments during the peak of English High Pitch madness (and beyond)...


Thanks Terry :)
