You can watch the entire first season of Kentucky Collectibles online to get a sense of what kind of treasures made it onto the show – and which ones were worth the most!
Highlights from last year’s appraisal fair include:
• One man’s father bought him a 1946 Martin guitar in Lexington in the late 1940s. It has its original case and all of its original parts and was appraised for $8,000.
• One individual brought in what was determined by an appraiser to be some of the rarest marbles in the world. The collection appraised for $20,000-$30,000 on the program.
• Another person brought in a well-preserved Harpers Ferry Model 1805 firearm that has been traced back to the War of 1812 in the Battle of the Thames where Tecumseh was killed. The current owner bought it from the Scott County family who originally owned it. It was appraised for $15,000-$20,000.
