ANTIQUES ROADSHOW: Raleigh, North Carolina - Hour Three

Airs Monday, October 13, 2014 at 9 p.m. on KPBS TV

Above: At "Antiques Roadshow" in Raleigh, North Carolina, this guest brings in a pair of side chairs she bought at an antiques store in New England. Appraiser Leigh Keno is surprised to see such large feet on what is undoubtedly the work of New England furniture maker John Gaines, produced between 1725 and 1730. Despite diminished value because the chairs have been stripped of original paint, Keno assigns the pair an auction estimate of $30,000 to $50,000.

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.

Slideshow: 1943 U.S. Naval Airship Service Group

At the ROADSHOW taping from Raleigh in June 2009, a guest named Frank brought in an impressive group of items from his father's service on U.S. Navy non-rigid airships during World War II, including his father's dog tags, flight log, and Navy press photographs.

"Raleigh" (Hour 3) - ROADSHOW visits North Carolina's Museum of the Cape Fear in Fayetteville, once the site of a U.S. arsenal seized by the Confederacy, to look at some of the weapons made in North Carolina during the Civil War. Highlights include an archive of items related to Martin Luther King Jr.'s 1966 visit to St. Mark's AME Zion Church in Durham; a circa 1800 heirloom Virginia-made table, purported to have ties to Thomas Jefferson; and a pair of circa 1725 chairs, made by New England furniture maker John Gaines, whose value - much diminished because the pieces are refinished - is estimated to be $30, 000 to $50,000. This episode originally aired in 2010.
