Above: This 3.4 carat fancy intense yellow diamond ring was brought to the Minneapolis ROADSHOW event by its original owner, who chose the stone for her engagement ring more than thirty years ago. She learned its current value is estimated to be $140,000-$160,000.

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.

Behind the Scenes in Minneapolis

View photos from ROADSHOW's visit to Minneapolis, Minn. on Saturday, July 9, 2011.

In Minneapolis, host Mark L. Walberg joins appraiser Sebastian Clarke at the American Swedish Institute to discuss Mora clocks, beautiful tall case timekeepers cherished by many Swedish-Americans who immigrated to the U.S. in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Highlights include a questionable George Elmslie chair that, if authentic, could fetch $50,000; a 1900 McKinley-Roosevelt poster discovered at a flea market; and a 1976 fancy intense yellow diamond ring, valued at $140,000-$160,000.
