A 308-year-old Stradivarius violin is estimated to sell in the range of $15 million to $20 million on June 9 at an online auction conducted by the fine instrument auction house Tarisio

Tarisio’s record for a Stradivarius stands at $16 million from a sale in 2011; because of condition issues, it could not be played, just collected.
