From Bill  Jehle:

Acquired from Tony Hyman… this long body WWI era violin, the only I've ever seen this size, is very unusual. Built on a cut-down (made thinner) NW 250 with 1910 tax stamp, this has 4-strings on a factory neck. Originally, this violin included a sound post held in place by a length of string. The string and post have since fallen out of place. Inspecting the interior of the cigar box reveals the name of the maker and a curious note about where the box was "got" from. "This Violin is made by J. S. Whitmoyer,  Ononto Rossville PA. This box was got at I. C. Buddy Slabtown PA."
