Longtime lost stolen Stradivarius violin was recovered by the FBI


Roman Totenberg bought the Stradivarius in 1943 for $15,000  (more than $200,000 in today’s dollars) and it was the only instrument he performed with until it was stolen. It was very affected due its lost and deceased three years ago, 101 old. “This loss for my father was, as he said when it happened, it was like losing an arm,” said daughter Jill Totenberg, a public relations executive in New York.
The violin will be returned to the family. They want to sell it to another artist, to be effectively  used and not stored in a collection.
