Would these two violins be worth spending $250 to see what they are, or are they to far gone?  @Fiddlerman

From the pics both look repairable. Question is how much time or money do you want to invest.

With violins there is no fretting over the music.

Probably worth it. The issue is whether you have the means to restore it and how much it would cost you otherwise. Time and or cost.
