The mystery of a stolen Stradivarius

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

When violinist David Sarser got a last-minute call on Aug. 16, 1962, to perform at NBC Studios, he went to his Midtown Manhattan music studio to grab his prized Stradivarius violin. It was gone.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation pursued the violin, crafted in 1735 and worth millions today, for decades. Agents traced it to Japan, but the case eventually ran cold.

Mr. Sarser and an FBI agent who looked for the instrument for years both died.

Then, a few years ago, an advertisement to sell the Strad for $500,000 appeared on the dark web, an encrypted corner of the internet best known for illegal drugs and fake identification documents.
