Min-Jin Kym’s violin sells for $2.1 million

A violin once stolen from classical musician Min-Jin Kym has sold for $2.1 million (£1.4 million) at auction. The star was recently reunited with the 300-year-old Stradivarius following its discovery at a property in the Midlands, England more than two years after it was taken from her in a sandwich shop in north London.
Kym replaced the instrument after it was stolen, so the recovered violin was put up for auction in London on Wednesday (18Dec13) and it sold for $2.1 million.
A portion of the auction proceeds will reportedly be donated to the authorities who helped recover the valuable piece over the summer (13).
