ANTIQUES ROADSHOW: Miami Beach, Florida - Hour One

Airs Monday, November 3, 2014 at 8 p.m. on KPBS TV

Above: The beaming owner of this poster, produced for the 1960 re-release of the iconic biker movie "The Wild One," starring Marlon Brando. Appraiser Rudy Franchi estimates the rare, silk-screened poster to be worth $3,500 to $4,000.

Specialists from the country's leading auction houses and independent dealers from across the nation travel throughout the United States offering free appraisals of antiques and collectibles. ANTIQUES ROADSHOW cameras watch as owners recount tales of family heirlooms, yard sale bargains and long-neglected items salvaged from attics and basements, while experts reveal the fascinating truths about these finds. Mark L. Walberg hosts.

A cheerfully unassuming-looking mobile, received by the owner’s aunt in 1958 as a gift from Alexander Calder. Considered to be the inventor of the mobile art form, Calder’s kinetic sculptures often have been imitated. Appraiser Christopher Kennedy believes the mobile could be worth as much as $400,000 to $1M, making it the second highest value appraisal in ROADSHOW history!
