Good for you taking it down there! By having it appraised by the Roadshow you've added to its rich patina of Americana-ness.

My god, the line for the Painting category was ridiculously long. Every geezer in a 100-mile radius brought a painting it seems.

One of the items I brought was a book whose value I already had a pretty good grasp of. It's a first US edition of a book that has had many editions, blah blah and I've spent time researching the differences of the various covers/editions. The appraiser said it was maybe worth $40, which is way off. Still, going there was fun, and the other appraised item resulted in a more interesting experience.

I enjoy ARS, but there are tons of delusional people out there who seem incapable of doing even basic research online. It will be fun to see which items from the Seattle day they pick to air.

If ARS comes to my town I'll never have to go get anything appraised because our family (mine and the wifey's) contains nothing of special value. It makes me jealous of families with "history" and heirloom possessions
