If Mr. Levine will allow:  I've been seeing this one advertised on Craigslist.  By looking at the size of the tailpiece in relation to the violin top I'm thinking it's a 3/4 size violin.  Those can be nice but those mechanical tuner more or less put a dent in your plans for a good monetary return by offering it for sale.  When you take the violin to K.C. Strings for an opinion ask to see if the violin is blocked and lined, is the fingerboard ebony, is it a 3/4 or 4/4 size and if it could be from the 1800's with a genuine label.  If it were a full size I'd think you would of sold it by now, just my opinion.  Don't be surprised or offended if the violin is worth only $35.00 and the bow maybe $40.00- for the sake of the love of violins I hope I'm wrong.
