NEW YORK -- The piano used for the song As Times Goes By in the classic 1942 film Casablanca has fetched more than $600,000 at auction.
The 58-key upright was sold to an unidentified buyer for $602,500 at Sotheby's New York on Friday.
Its pre-sale estimate was up to $1.2 million.
It was offered by a Japanese collector on the film's 70th anniversary.
The collector purchased the movie prop at a Sotheby's auction in 1988 for $154,000.
Humphrey Bogart played Rick Blaine in the Oscar-winning Second World War love story, opposite Ingrid Bergman's character, Ilsa Lund.
