Need some help with sorting out a Charles Claudot Violin I have. The heel was split and the button desecrated, so I am having to add to the bottom of the heel extensively (split and reshaped aggressively), and will most likely crown the button. I was looking for some good pics of what the heel is supposed to look like, and button. I'm seeing stuff all over the map on this. Very few of the Claudot, C violins I am seeing are similar, so now I am very confused. Some look like typical Mirecourt work, while others, well....just don't. Anyone very familiar with Charles Claudot? I'm also trying to sort out if it's Dad, or son (I, II). Here is a link to Tarisio's, where I got it. http://tarisio.com/cozio-archive/property/?ID=66680. I can provide any pics and this instrument is open. What I'm after is to get an idea if it is a Claudot (I am pretty sure it is), Which Claudot (I, II), and some pics of the heel, button area of what this is. Any help would be appreciated. jeff
