Greg B Paypal orders violin to be destroyed (56* d) RE: Paypal orders violin to be destroyed 05 Jan 12


This is where the faceless corporations have to hire people (like museum curators) who have a clue. A good chunk of the decent fiddles in this world have a label inside them that reads something like "Antonius Stradiivarius, Cremona, Italia..."

Now we know damned good and well that it's nothing more than a fake label, and that the instrument is worth not $2,000,000 but maybe $2,000. They are, nonetheless, fine instruments built by the hands of fine craftsmen perhaps a century or two ago.

That someone would take a hammer to one...
