My name is***** have been dealing in and appraising musical instruments for over 40 years, and I can help you with this. This is a copy. These were made mostly in the 1920s in Germany. The label was not meant to decieve, but states which violin specifications this was built on. These retail for $800-1200.

Thank you,

Wayne
