Above: At "Antiques Roadshow" in Wichita, Kansas, this collector of antique tools proudly holds a late-18th-century surveyor's compass he bought for $120. Although he suspected the compass's age would add to its value, the owner had no idea the instrument's maker was Goldsmtih Chamblee, one of the finest clockmakers in the Virginia colonies. Chamblee's name rockets the compass' retail value to $20,000 to $25,000.
