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.

Things We Commonly See

These objects are all things our experts see loads of in their travels throughout the country. Take a look — maybe you'll learn a thing or two about an antique in your attic!

Appraisal Updates

Learn about new developments surrounding appraisals from previous ROADSHOW segments.

App for iPhone and iPad

Join the fun as you test your appraisal skills on actual antiques from across the USA. The app incorporates only real antiques, photos, item histories and values, as appraised on the TV series. Your purchase supports PBS and ANTIQUES ROADSHOW.

"Vintage Hartford" - Fifteen years have passed since ANTIQUES ROADSHOW visited Hartford, and some of the values of the items appraised have changed dramatically — some for the better, and some for the worse.

A 1915 Coca-Cola® jigsaw puzzle and an Emancipation Announcement print both gained value since 1998, but the big winner is a Tiffany aquamarine glass vase, which was originally appraised at $30,000 to $40,000 and is now valued between $90,000 and $100,000.
