Above: In Salt Lake City, Utah, local appraiser Ken Sanders of Ken Sanders Rare Books is inspired when he comes face to face with the owner of a first edition volume of "The Pearl of Great Price," the third book of Mormon scripture, published in 1851, after the death of Joseph Smith. Passed down in the owner's family, the book still bears the exceedingly rare original front and rear wrappers; Sanders estimates it would bring $45,000 - $55,000 at retail.

In Salt Lake City, Utah, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW host Mark L. Walberg is joined by ROADSHOW appraisers Leigh and Leslie Keno for a tour of what may be the largest antique furniture store in America: Euro Treasure Warehouse, with some 40,000 pieces the owner had shipped from Europe.

At the Salt Palace Convention Center, ROADSHOW appraisers discover treasures with local roots, including a writing desk made by the owner's great-grandfather, Robert Nell, one of the original Mormon pioneers; a mid-19th-century shotgun passed down from the owner's great-great-grandfather, an employee of the Overland Mail Company stagecoach service; and an extremely rare, 1851 first edition copy of "The Pearl of Great Price" - the third volume of Mormon scripture - inherited from the owner's grandfather and valued at $45,000 to $55,000.
