I live in New York City and would like to know the best way to sell my violin, viola and violin bow, which are pretty valuable. Is it best to try to sell them privately to avoid the dealer's 20% commission, or go through a dealer anyway? What are the best places to advertise if I want to sell them privately? What are the best/most reputable dealers in NYC to sell valuable instruments and bows? Before I sell, do I need to obtain a certificate of authenticity and/or appraisal? Sorry for so many questions, but your advice is appreciated.
