Seattle, Hour Two (Episode #1717H)

KQED Plus: Sat, Jun 29, 2013 -- 8:00 PM

It wouldn't be a visit to Seattle without a ride up the Space Needle! Host Mark L. Walberg and appraiser Nicholas Lowry visit the tower to talk about World's Fair posters. Seattle's discoveries run the gamut with a circa 1964 "Star Trek" script and pitch letter; a Civil War dog collar; and Harriet Frishmuth bookends valued at $10,000.

Vintage Los Angeles (Episode #1722H)

KQED 9: Mon, Jun 24, 2013 -- 8:00 PM

15 years after visiting Los Angeles, AR takes a look back to see what some of the most memorable appraisals are worth today. Some items have increased in value, while others haven't fared as well. Tune in to see items like Disney animation art, a 1906 Van Briggle vase, and a Tiffany lamp that was first appraised in 1998 at $30,000 to $40,000 and is newly appraised at $50,000 to $75,000.

Vintage Houston (Episode #1624H)

KQED Plus: Sat, Jun 22, 2013 -- 8:00 PM

In 1998, Dr. Ferid Murad of the UT-Houston Medical School won the Nobel Prize in medicine for his work on the cardio-vascular system, while AR made hearts palpitate with its first visit to H-Town. 14 years later, a 19th-century Chinese jade scepter, originally appraised for $1500 to $2500, has spiked to a radiantly healthy $50, 000 to $80,000, while a 1912 Titanic menu went from a heart-stopping $75,000 to $100,000 to a less pulse-quickening $50,000 to $75,000.

Palm Springs, California - Hour Two (Episode #1302H)

KQED 9: Mon, Jun 17, 2013 -- 8:00 PM

AR continues its exploration of Palm Springs, California, with a visit to nearby Pioneertown, the location for many Hollywood westerns, to discuss trophy belt buckles. At the Palm Springs Convention Center, it's a cinch that appraisers will lasso the kind of discoveries that include a costume dress literally sewn onto Marilyn Monroe for her role in the classic 1959 comedy Some Like It Hot, estimated to be worth a very hot $150,000 to $250,000.

Seattle, Hour One (Episode #1716H)

KQED Plus: Sat, Jun 15, 2013 -- 8:00 PM

In 1998, Dr. Ferid Murad of the UT-Houston Medical School won the Nobel Prize in medicine for his work on the cardiovascular system, while AR made hearts palpitate with its first visit to H-Town. 14 years later, a 19th-century Chinese jade scepter, originally appraised for $1500 to $2500, has spiked to a radiantly healthy $50, 000 to $80,000, while a 1912 Titanic menu went from a heart-stopping $75,000 to $100,000 to a less pulse-quickening $50,000 to $75,000.

Palm Springs, California - Hour One (Episode #1301H)

KQED 9: Mon, Jun 10, 2013 -- 8:00 PM

Host Mark L. Walberg opens the lucky 13th season in Palm Springs, California, with a mix of great good fortune and an equally staggering loss. At one extreme, experts discover the most valuable object ever appraised on the series: a 1937 painting by noted American abstract expressionist Clyfford Still - received as a housewarming gift - conservatively estimated to be worth $500,000. At the other, collector Jim McCarty invites viewers to join the hunt for stolen works from his private collection of California plein air paintings.
