Paul finds a group of California gold rush letters on the front porch and Ambrotypes in the attic of the estate.

He transcribes all the letters and sells them for $80,500 for the estate!

About the Show:
No, Appraisal Day is no pawn shop supposedly telling you the value of your items,
some elite auction house or dealer trying to buy your items for half the price.
Appraisal Day is one man based in New England with a lot of experience
(author of several antique books, previous appraiser PBS series Antiques Roadshow, record setting auctioneer, host of hundreds of appraisal events).
Paul tells people the true value and history of their items and by doing so changes their lives forever. 
His wife calls him the human lottery ticket because of all the treasures he has found for his customers. 
Join Paul along with his friends and family as he values fine art, antiques & collectibles for people across the country,
raising money for charities, organizations and good causes and helping people along the way with his pay it forward philosophy.

This Steiff teddy bear was in a closet in the estate of a person with Alzheimer.  Paul got the estate over $10,000 for the bear which was later used for charity!

Found in an attic by a person helping an elderly client downsize they contacted Paul who graded the gold coin and sold it for $17,000!

A lady brings this painting in for an appraisal after a dealer offered her $4,000.
  Paul got her $241,500 for it!

This painting was left by a customer's father in a crate in a basement.  Paul identifies the artist, restores the painting and helps put his customer's children through college!
