I've stumbled across someone selling a family heirloom... or so they say.
I'd like to know if it could be legitimate. In a case like this one has to be skeptical.
I have a set of pictures and was wondering if there's anyone available with the expertise to offer an educated guess on whether or not this "might" indeed be a Poggi? Getting a professional evaluation would be difficult because of the location but could be done if there's a fair chance that it is what it appears to be. Notice the E String and the bridge. This instrument doesn't look like it's been polished up for sale or is currently in the hands of someone who cares.
I can make the pictures available on Picasa through this link.
These pictures are of high resolution and will stand up to being enlarged if you download them.
Thanks for any opinions you can offer.
