Could someone explain to me why are dealers being so secretive about telling the real make and value of old violins.I have a 17c. violin...no label no papers...35 years ago showed it to Mr.Francais...he told me that it is 17c. and told me what it it.At that time I was playing the violin...I was just happy to know about it.Now I want to sell it...I retired...can not get any dealers to help me.I took it to London to N.Y. they say $1500 ...what is a joke!!!I can see their jaw drop when they see the instrument!!!
