That’s very easy. Just take a look at the label.

I used to have a violin shop in a general music store, about 20 years ago. I was working on a beautiful Stainer with Hill papers from the early 20th c. The violin came to the US as part of the Waddell collection, sharing a double case with the Betts. I took the Stainer in to show everyone how beautiful and elegant a real Stainer was. At the end of the show and tell, I explained that now having seen a real Stainer, that they would be able to eliminate 99% of the instruments with a Stainer label, all of the instruments with a Stainer brand on the outside of the back, but that having seen that one would not make them able to identify a real Stainer and sort it out from the other things that it might actually be.
