$10 Million Violin Discovered in Huguette Clark's Closet

Violin

Three years after philanthropist and heiress Huguette Clark’s death, a 1731 Stradivarius violin was discovered in her closet.  Considered to be one of the most rare and priciest violins in the world, the Stradivarius is now expected to auction for between $7.5 million and $10 million.  The violin is one of more than 400 items from the family collection that is in the auction.
