Is the label on this violin legit?
GrandPhuba posted a topic in The PegboxA violin is being sold from Prague, Czech Republic, with a Socquet Label. I've seen threads about this maker before, and have seen violins with the label similar to the one below. My concern, however, is that the exact year in on this label was not specified: see that there's a 17 there, consistent to the maker being from the 1700s, but the last 2 digits were left blank. Are there any red flags as to the authenticity and value of this violin's age and label? Personally I don't care if this is a high value violin or not, would just like to know if the label is genuine, and if it's actually from the 18th century and not a 'fake' modern antique-ized violin. Here are additional photos of this violin:
