Hello All, I've been lurking for a bit and joined up because I think you may be able to help me figure out more about my great-grandfather's violin. Link to Photobucket albulm: http://s249.beta.photobucket.com/user/loweapline96/library/Franz%20Jung%20Violin It's label is gone, written in fountain pen is 1892. It has real lower blocks but no uppers, a proper neck block, fake graft lines on the pegbox, and the bass bar is glued in. It looks like the back was refinished because it's just too clean and I can see brush strokes. There is a repair mark (I think) from August 1922 I just can't make out what all it says: There is also some sort of marking on the button that I can't really make out, I thought someone here may have seen it before: I'm trying to get some of the remaining children to tell me if my great-grandfather purchased it here in the States or if he may have purchased it before he left Germany. Please feel free to look through the albulm of pics (some by me and some from the Luthier that repaired it for me) and let me know what you think. If you need better pics of any particular area just say so and I will add them to the albulm. Oh, and in case you're wondering, it sounds wonderful. Thanks again for taking the time to look and lend your help.
