You can't really evaluate it on an online forum. You need to take it to someone who can inspect it physically. The label saying "Stradivarius cremonensis 1713" only means it's a copy of a Strad, probably made in the 20th century. It may be a decent violin or not, but is probably not a high-end instrument. The first violin I bought (some more than 30 years ago) had the same label. I paid $65 for it, and it wasn't a great instrument. But to find a value for it you'll need to take to someone who knows about violins for a physical inspection. It may turn out to be a playable instrument and may have a nice tone, but it's probably not worth a lot of money.
