Here's the scroll of the "1870 Albani Guarnerius", which shows fine blacking on the chamfer and charming character throughout. The peg-holes have been roughly treated before, and there is a crack off the e-peg-hole. Bushings to be fit! The fingerboard was also glued on off-set, so will have to be reglued or replaced.

The back and scroll of "sweeping up."
Here's the back of the "1870 Albani Guarnerius", which I think is really nice. It is a little more amber-colored in real life than it is on my computer screen (here), but the flame is lively, something hard to see in a still photo.
