Neither nor. These are massproduced violins from the early 20th century bearing also massproduced prints (most time not even facsimiles) with Stainers name without any resemblance to real instruments by this maker. Same applies usually to other instruments of the same origin with Stradivari, Amati, Guarneri, Bergonzi etc. etc. labels. I would appreciate if people would stop calling this artifacts "copies".B)

This is exactly correct. I couldn’t come up with the right words. Well said.

Nobody can give a precise value without seeing the instrument in question because of all the variables. I'll go out on a limb and suggest $200 if it's playable as is.

Less if it needs work.

Exactly. It also depends of the region, to whom you're selling (dealer, restorer, private person etc.)
