I have seen those from the first half of the 20th ct at worse prices. 

Or what is your point? And how did you determine the II-R model from those images?

They show the label which indicates it is a copy of a 1734 Guarnerius -- that makes it a II-R.

My mistake! I thought the auction ended last night at 10 pm, but it was this morning at 10 am. Now I see it sold for $8501.00! Wow! I mean, I see SHAR has a I-R they're asking $12,000 for, but one in rough shape for 8500 seems remarkable.

The bow takes some of the sting out of the price. That is unless you get it and discover the head has been broken off and glued together with super glue;) these sort of auctions I think of as violin roulette. There is some sort of excitement rolling the dice.  There is also the possibility the high bidder called/emailed in and got tiny bit of information (ie a picture of the bow that indicated it was a nurnberger or the like)  which sorta changes the dynamic.  Im not claiming this is a nurnberger (it might be a Sartory :) ) just making the point
