Any problem and he/she will issue new valid paperwork and confirm.

Of course seeing it made plus all those things is great too, but you don't have to commision it and stand over the maker. The problems are with long dead makers who may not have left proof, and also crooks who tamper with labels and other things to pass instruments off as valuable. I had the opportunity to buy a Vincenzo Panormo violin quite a while back.

I am hoping to sell the violin at a fair price to a conservatory level student or young professional. It is not being sold to another dealer or an auction house, so I think the odds of it "resurfacing" at a later date are rather low.

Without that certificate, the label (as stated above) means nothing, except perhaps to the unwary.v=r Tso0w YH4f4To my mind, the only way to be absolutely certain about the provenance of a violin is to commission one from a luthier and watch him making it through its various stages. It would have been nice if my mislabeled violin had in fact turned out to be a Gofriller. And no, I did not buy it on the basis of the label; I bought it on the basis of a certificate from someone who was a respected expert. I'm splitting (bow) hairs here Trevor, to slightly disagree with you.A living modern maker who has made an instrument recently (in the last few years) will have given it signed paperwork to back up the label and also photos. The very one, that ebay seller, violiniada, is a notorious conman, absolutely no chance your violin is genuine coming from him, Your violin might be just barely worth 00 if it sounded great and didn't have that nasty crack in the heel of the neck, Oh, and the bridge looks low, another costly repair needed. It doesn't matter what the seller or the label says the violin is, if you can't find a respected expert to certify it as such, it is not that thing. Even respected experts can disagree, in which case the bigger and/or more recent name wins.However, from the point of view of the layperson looking to buy a violin, the label means nothing.
