It seems like vandalism to open up an otherwise very clean early 19th century French violin just to insert some fake brands - all so you can fail to sell it on Ebay for about what it would have been worth without them.

So true...

To me, the top does not look like it has been off any time recently.

Take a look at the photo showing the neck root - you will see a lot of tearout to the underside of the top plate.

Yes, thanks, I see that now. Do you think dabbing mud under the edge along the rib is part of the counterfeiting process?

If one knows what they are doing, you won't be able to tell very easily, and certainly not from pictures on fleabay.

I would see this more in the middle of the 19th, or even later. Otherwise  I agree 100%. A Mangenot brand would have been the better choice.:ph34r:
