Program Description

ANTIQUES ROADSHOW’s Special Edition, Simply the Best, showcases objects deemed the finest examples of their kind ever seen on ROADSHOW. Highlights include: a superlative pair of circa 1795, Massachusetts-made Federal side chairs, valued at $30,000 to $50,000; a staggeringly rare 19th-century Rhode Island rifle and powderhorn, valued at $100,000 to $120,000; and the "holy grail" of American women’s suffrage movement posters - a timely reminder that 2010 is the 90th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution - valued at $10,000 to $15,000.
