I am thinking of purchasing this violin. The seller says it's French from early 20th century. Can anyone tell me about it? There is a small crack on the backside, going up the middle from the chin rest, and the purfling is damaged. How much would this cost to repair?

Unless you are yourself a luthier interested in buying what is most likely a mid to late 1800's German violin, with an unusual neck graft onto a through-neck, as a project for your own amusement only, I'd advise against buying it.  :)
