In each episode, specialists from the country's leading auction houses — Bonhams and Butterfields, Christie's, Doyle New York, Skinner and Sotheby's — and independent dealers from across the nation offer free appraisals of antiques and collectibles.
ANTIQUES ROADSHOW cameras capture tales of family heirlooms, yard sale bargains and long-lost items salvaged from attics and basements, while experts reveal the fascinating truths about these finds.
ANTIQUES ROADSHOW throws its hat in the ring on the eve of the mid-term elections with this special edition “Politically Collect,” a celebration of America’s passion for collecting and electing.
Highlights include: an extensive collection of campaign buttons; a court affidavit submitted by Jimmy Carter to the state of Maine on the eve of the 1976 election, appealing its decision to list him on the ballot as James Earl Carter; and signed photos of Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson, valued at $75,0000.
This episode originally aired in 2010.
