After the kids find a record with Homer's picture on it, he recalls the story of how he achieved fame in the 1980s with his barbershop quartet, The Be Sharps.

The violin that Homer discovers and tosses aside is a Stradivarius which were crafted in the 17th and 18th centuries and still considered to be the some of the best string instruments ever created. And like the other items in the box it is worth a fortune. See more
