I've always wondered...

by Doc Nickel

I've only seen maybe two episodes of Antiques Roadshow (or some similar show) so I'm hardly the one to know, but I've always wondered about some of the bits that don't get televised.

Kind of like that one Simpsons episode where the family decides they have to sell a grandparent's antique civil war figurine, which later turns out to be a liquor bottle from the 70s.

How many times does someone bring in some "valuable antique", that their parents or grandparents had told them was worth a fortune, only to have one of the experts tell them it was a reprint or reproduction, or was simply made in such huge quantities they're nearly worthless, etc.

How many arguments erupt from that? happy.gif
