Program Description

ANTIQUES ROADSHOW's "Greatest Finds" showcases the absolute cream of the crop — objects whose rarity, quality, and value are unsurpassed among the more than half-million items evaluated at ROADSHOW appraisal events over our first eight years. Unforgettable finds include a long-overlooked Navajo blanket valued at $350,000 to $500,000; an 18th-century demi-lune table bought at a yard sale for $25 and estimated to be worth $200,000 to $300,000; and an heirloom solid gold-handled sword presented to a U.S. general by the President, valued at $200.000.
