Above: Appraiser Thomas Lecky of Christie's corrals a set of frontier treasures. These breastplate decorations, known as gorgets, were worn by two of the Sioux nation's most powerful chiefs in the 1870s. Together with an original copy of the first book ever printed in Wyoming - an 1866 dictionary of the Sioux language - this collection could round up $100,000 to $150,000 at auction.

"Antiques Roadshow's" second hour from Tampa, Florida, finds host Mark Walberg and appraiser Leila Dunbar at the Tournament Players Club of Tampa Bay to address a range of golf collectibles.


"Seed Pearl Jewelry" - Jewelry appraiser Jeanenne Bell explains "seed pearls."

"Lakota Dictionary" - This was the first book in Wyoming ... but how do we know?

At the Tampa Convention Center, appraisers take a swing at some ace finds, including two outstanding pieces of Marblehead art pottery dating back to 1910; a collection of colorful pre-war German and Japanese character canes used as carnival prizes; and a set of Sioux artifacts - including a pair of breastplate decorations worn by the Sioux nation's most powerful chiefs in the 1870s; and an original copy of the first book ever printed in Wyoming, with an auction value of $100,000 to $150,000.
