to answer your question, it was just my violin teacher gave me her opinion of it. Verbal only. Based on the sticker inside, the sound, and the condition (no damage)

Hi again,

I am happy to call you, but I want to be sure you know that the phone call will incur an additional charge, usually around $35. Is that acceptable to you?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No no I don't want an additional fee. Texting is fine.
Expert:  twinb1201 replied 1 year ago.

Very well. Glad I asked!

Is that the exact wording on the label? Kreutzer no. 220, 1967 Germany? Nothing else?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
sons chicago
Expert:  twinb1201 replied 1 year ago.

Please check the spelling of "Kreutzer" for me. That spelling appears to be a non existent brand. I can find a composer named Kreutzer, but not a luthier.
