  1. Thanks Richard. Yes, it is a gold mounted one. It is a very sad situation. Nowadays it is almost impossible to find a good professional in any field. The police investigator did not do a thing to try to find the instrument. Now he even refuses to call back when I try to inquire about the case. The insurance investigator also did not do much at all. They paid him only to interview me and to "try" to contact a few neighbors. The rest was assumed. I am so overwhelmed and frustrated. I am planning to post flyers around offering a reward. That's the last hope I have. Alex
  2. On July 18 2020 my violin with two bows inside the Musafia Master Series violin case was stolen from my house. Violin is a work of Alfredo Contino 1920, one bow is a work of Hermann Richard Pfretzschner, another one is a Coda bow. I reported the missing instrument immediately, but until now there is no info about it. The location of the Theft: Albany, GA. Clarion Insurance after a few months of investigation decided that this case is falling under “unexplained disappearance” exclusion clause. Makes no sense, but I will never use this company again. Please help me to recover my instrument
  3. What would be the most prominent and worldwide recognizable US violin certificate shop? Thanks.
  4. Thanks so much Mr. Holmes for the clarification. No problem, sounds fair to me.
  5. I am have never posted on this site, but was reading posts very often. Would anyone let me know how it works? It took 16 hours after the initial post to be "approved by a moderator" and finally receive your comments. Now I wrote another comment an hour ago and it still hidden from you all. The one I am wring now will probably go live in another half a day... Is it only newbies are treated like that? How many posts I need to have to be able to communicate in real time? Thanks.
  6. Thanks so much to each of you. Every bit of info is always helpful. It's a Rembert Wurlitzer certificate (1968). Looks like I was wrong about the frog, it's probably original too. Not to mention that now it's a love affair to me anyway. I love the way it plays, makes music and always alive in your hands. Cheers!
  7. Hi guys, Trying to buy a bow. Went to a prominent shop and found an excellent Pfretzschner there (has a certificate). They want $4,500 for it. But it has a gold mounted frog and silver winding. Probably it indicates that the frog is not original, although definitely belong to another Pfretzschner bow. Usually they say that the price should go dramatically down when the frog is not original... Would you take a look at the pics and advise, please: Thanks.
