Violin on the market in Chicago for millions

July 9, 2010 (CHICAGO)

The 18th century violin was made by Giuseppe Guarneri del Gesu.

Experts say it would be the most expensive instrument of all time.

The British owner of the 269-year-old violin has held firm to his asking price.

So far, it has received the attention of plenty of potential buyers.

A Russian buyer snatched up another Guarneri masterpiece for $10 million last year.
