Comments:

1-piece back and ribs of bird’s-eye maple; no fold in back. Pegbox said to be grafted in middle, with fluted back. 2 pegs treble, 3 bass side. Restored by H. Münzberg, who has made at least one copy; all back braces and linings look new and bridge is marked “H M”. Modern label on top block may be his (unable to read it).
