Authenticating Joseph Guarnerius violin 1743

Josef Guarnerius Fecit Cremonae anno 17 IHS
Korbitz posted a topic in The PegboxI'm going to start out by saying I'm pretty sure its a reproduction of some sorts by how the name is spelled incorrectly compared to other spellings, but might as well get a second opinion. Recently my dear great grandfather rest his soul passed away due to complications of COVID. Before his passing he always said it was an authentic violin and now that he is gone it has been handed down to me and I would like to frame it or possibly restore it if its worth the money. He served during WW2 and was based in France for a short period with the 87th Signal Company, I've never asked where he got it so I don't know if he picked it up in France or if its been passed down, his father was born in Finland in the late 1800s. The tag inside the violin says Josef Guarnerius Fecit Cremonae anno 17 IHS with a cross above IHS. The bridge has a different name on it which I believe says Vuillaume, not to sure as its worn. It has 2 bows, one feels cheap and I cant find any identifiable markings while the other feels like real wood shows some age and the only marking I've found on it says Germany. I'll link some pictures, Thanks to anyone who can help my identify this, I'll still try to go into a shop sometime so someone can inspect this in person.
Hank posted a topic in The PegboxNeed help identifying this violin. Don’t know much about it, had it laying around our house. After some research I learned about Joseph Guarnerius. Here are pictures. Tag reads: Modle HEPolley, (next line reads) jos-Guarnerious that is what I could make out, hand writing kinda sloppy. The violin is kept in the case, don’t know if that is special but yeah. Thanks for the help!

Authenticity of Grandfather's Joseph Guarnerius Violin
hakin posted a topic in The PegboxHello, I have found old violin which belonged to my grandfather. I do not understand instruments and therefore I would like to ask you for help. I have found on the web that there are many copies of these Joseph Guarnerius violins. Could anybody give me any estimate how much this is worth? It is not in a great condition but still playable. Is this non-labelled but old and in good condition bow worth any value? See pics below. Thank you very much in advance. https://www.dropbox.com/s/su7uox34ff5zqdd/20150820_171126.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/6lfz11ucpje1y2q/20150820_171137.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/92zirfpd3l4vkpt/20150820_171317.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/wfzu9yetijwjeu5/20150820_171321.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/8eh3kv9puzoyk54/20150820_171324.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/7ga7c8qjkmpirs3/20150820_171341.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/wlve0frh2amp54s/20150820_171422.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/mmts103wngsg4y4/20150820_171426.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/90r3nyt24s6y4m2/20150820_171517.jpg?dl=0
