Above: The owner (left) of this Kentucky corner cupboard - at one time destined to be burned and thrown away - discovers its true worth at ANTIQUES ROADSHOW in Louisville, Kentucky. Appraiser Leigh Keno of Leigh Keno American Antiques observes that the cupboard is made with locally grown wood, adding to its Kentucky flavor and appeal, and declares its value at $8,500.

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.
