Violin has a one piece back and also has writing inside the sound whole. It is hard to read but from what i gather states repaired and then name of repair person with the year 1902 written in old english cursive.
I have added a few pictures for viewing. Per my Luther, i was advised that this can sell for over 2k.
For being over 100 years old, it is great. It has wear and tears. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. For those of you wondering where it was made, i was given 2 answers. My Luther stated looks to be German.Another local luther stated Italian. In either case this is a very well sounding vintage violin.
