Hello,My name is XXXXX XXXXX X'll be pleased to help you with this question.Nicholas Diehl (sometimes spelled Diel) was born in 1779 and died in 1851. Your violin may be one of his, or it may be a copy, made in a German workshop at the turn of the 20th century. The only way to know with certainty which it is, is to have the violin examined in person by a qualified expert. If you can tell me the nearest large city to you, I can recommend experts for you.

What is the approximate value real vs reproduction?
A reproduction will ordinarily have a retail (replacement or insurance) value of approximately $1,000. A genuine Diehl, depending on condition and tone, can have a value anywhere from $5,000 to $25,000.It seems that there is not one violin appraiser in Detroit. Is there another large city that is a reasonable distance from you?
Chicago or Cleveland?
Thank you.You should interview each of these, in order to find the best fit for you.Carl F.
