Subject: RE: What's a Strad, Amati etc fiddle?
I have a violin that my grandfather had since around 1917 that has a label ended with a circle surrounding a + sign under which is the initials AS. The rest of the label Antonius Stradiuarius Cremonensis Faciebat Anno 1713, followed by said cirle stamp. How do I find if this violin is authentic?
