Hi all, does anyone recognize this stamp in my 1736 German Violin? also, does anyone else feel the first character is not a 9 as a pencil stroke for 9 is very strong and would have endured over the centuries? Maybe 18th century German script initials and not even numbers? I also read an article that stated violins of this time had 56 parts. Initials and QC mark? Anyway, interesting mark and speculation. Thanks in advance, Jason
I recently came across this violin on ebay. Although it does seem to have some issues it appears to be well made. My amateur guess is that its a mid 18th century Mittenwald violin, however, I would like to have your opinions on what you think this violin may be and possibly, who made it One unique feature I noticed on this violin is that the scroll eye seems to be filed down at an inward angle. http://www.ebay.com/itm/152649649255?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
