sorry for the ignorance: can you show me the difference between a real and a fake peg box ? many thanks !

The pegbox is real, it is the neck graft which is simulated.
A neck graft involves the old scroll, being grafted onto a brand-new neck. The flame of the neck, and grain lines will always be different to each other, and the joint between the two parts is usually noticeable.

On very cheap violins like this, which have antiqued finish, they often added features of age, simply by scratching lines into the wood, and rubbing dirt into the scratched lines. This then gives an appearance of a neck graft, but only until you look closely (or not even that closely in this case).
