Hello, I was wondering if you could help me out or direct me in the right direction. My father gave me a violin and told me it was very valuable, I am trying to put a value on it. Its a John Friedrich & Bro. Made in New York. #28 of 2954 anno 1919 it was the highest award Worlds Columbian Exposition chicago 1893. Grand Prize and Gold Medal Winner St. Louis Worlds Exposition 1904. Its in great condition, playable, has Bow and looks like Aligator Skin Case. If you could help me out with the direction to get it appraised or know the value yourself, it would be greatly appreciated.
