E-Bay auction 1/18/01, no. 539311084 (F+B, head FB+S, F-hole details, etc.)

Highly carved, open-back pegbox. Visible worm damage on upper back. Pictured with no bridge and fine-tuners for top 3 strings, also endpin with metal tailgut and 8 frets on neck. Only two dimensions given, here converted from inches. Pringle thinks it looks definitely German (Tielke/Stainer style) and that head and body belong together.
