Is it a real Nurnberger?
I am trying to buy a bow from a prominent violin shop. They sell it as a "Nurnberger" bow. I saw a lot of Nurnberger bows but I never seen the stamp to be done this way. Plays amazing though... Here is the link to the all the pics: http://docoyouthorchestra.com/Nurnberger/1.zip
Here is links for some separate pics:
You will still need to copy and paste them in order to see.
Please let me know what you think.
Thanks a bunch.
your link doesn't work
You need to copy it and paste in the browser address. Save, unzip the file and view all pics. I have 11 pics there.
Just be aware that if you copy and paste, the link will attempt to download the pics. My MacAfee stopped it.
I promise there is no virus neither in .ZIP, nor in .JPG files. Trust me, I am just a violinist not a bad person who dreams to input a virus on your PC. Promise...
You can post the pics on Imgur. Or Google drive. There are 10,000 ways to post something without requiring a download.
Prices for "Nürnberger bows continue to be all over the map. The auction record of over $10,000 was achieved in 2007 and not reached since. Acorcing to Tarisio (the auction house):
I saw the pictures perfectly well. Frankly, the brand is too worn to see.
They ask $4,000 with no certificate. Under the strong magnification you can clearly see ...RGER. Now it's clear that if it is NURNBERGER there is no space for the ALBERT there or for the asterisks around it. So I guess the question is: have anybody seen a bow labeled only with one word "NURNBERGER"? Also the label is upside down comparing to the regular *ALBERT NURNBERGER* label. Has anyone seen that?
Thanks so much guys for you responses! Every little thing helps. Here is the link to Imgur where I posted pics as well: https://imgur.com/a/IncyPyK
I just want to gently point out that when you view pictures anywhere on the Internet, period, the pictures are still downloaded onto your computer. They usually get stored in the cache directory for your web browser.

Thanks so much Cole! Pfretzschner with it sound purity is definitely my preference now. What a great bow! Here are the link to the pics if you would like to see: https://imgur.com/a/2zB1sJW
