What do a book made of silk, a 40 volume set of Native American photographs, and T.S. Eliot’s copy of The Great Gatsby have in common? They are all very expensive! In this gem of an episode Ken discusses some of the most valuable treasures ever to pass through the shop, plus a nearly discarded Founding Father letter with an eerily relevant message and the gold rush diary that paid for a baby. You’ll learn all the way to the bank!
When a priceless library is stolen, or a rare historical document's authenticity is in question, the U.S. government turns to one man. Ken tells stories of some of his most exciting appraisals, from Paul Revere to the Pilgrim Charter, and imparts some of the magic of everyday appraisals at the shop. All that glitters is not gold!
