  1. ...which ends in the next two days: Overall seems a bit more interesting than Tarisio, although the top item -- Peter Guarneri ex-Isenberg -- didn't sound too impressive to me in the youtube video they provided.
  2. I'm curious as to what the mark is ABOVE the label. Is that some sort of brand?
  3. Wouldn't Shar complain to ebay to have the seller shut down if it was illegitimate or fraudulent in any fashion?

  5. Salvaged from the goodwill is very good sounding instrument that I thought looked like Roth workshop material. It has what I consider "Roth-sign" in the form of a fake pin with associated longitudinal crack beneath the tailpiece. However it is not branded anywhere and the label is identical to the one I photographed except it is dated 1720. The label is larger than most -- maybe around five inches long and heavily antiqued.
