Stolen Stradivarius Violin Returns After 35 Years

GOOD NEWS: Stolen Stradivarius Violin Returns After 35 Years. “… Roman Totenberg stashed his violin — known as the Ames Stradivarius — in his office after a concert in 1980 while he chatted with fans and other folks. When he got back, it’d vanished. He’d purchased the rare violin in 1943 for $15,000 (about $200,000 today) and it was the only instrument he ever performed with — that is, until it was stolen. He passed away in 2012 at the age of 101, never to see his Stradivarius again.” Looks like nobody will be charged, but it’s good there’s another Strad around.
