Violins, bow worth nearly $25K stolen from Lincoln shop
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Police in Lincoln are investigation after two violins and a bow worth nearly $25,000 together were stolen from a local music shop.
The instruments were stolen from Capital City Strings sometime between Christmas and Wednesday, the Lincoln Journal Star reported.
The more valuable of the two instruments is an $18,000 brown 2001 violin crafted by Marilyn Wallin, an award-winning violin maker who lives and works in Lincoln. Wallin reported she’d last played that violin in late February.
It was discovered missing from the shop Wednesday.
The second violin, which was last seen around Christmas, is a 1919 Neff Philadelphia violin, valued at $3,000. The vintage bow from German maker Nurenberg is valued at $3,500.
