I can't believe it. I'm haveing coffee with my mother and aunt this morning and they mention this old violin one of their sisters have . I ask what kind it is and they tell me matter of factly thats it's a Stradivarius. I ask how they're so sure and they say it says so right inside. I ask where it came from and they tell me that their father was given to him by his father. I ask if they had any idea what it was worth and my aunt guess's "a couple of thousand I suppose". They freaked when I showed them that Strads started at 30k and went way up from there.Into the millions. I'm curious how this is going to pan out. I'd hate to see that thing just go to waste sitting in a glass case. They're seven sisters involved all in their 70's. Now they have a topic to chat about if indeed it truly is a Strad.
