Summary:
Watch as owners recount tales of family heirlooms, yard sale bargains, and long-neglected items salvaged from attics and basements, while experts reveal the fascinating truths about these finds.

Simply the Best - Showcases the objects deemed the finest examples of their kind ever seen on ANTIQUES ROADSHOW, including a superlative pair of circa 1795, Massachusetts-made Federal side chairs, valued at $30,000 to $50,000; a staggeringly rare 19th-century Rhode Island rifle and powderhorn, valued at $100,000 to $120,000; and the "holy grail" of American women's suffrage movement posters valued at $10,000 to $15,000.

Trash to Treasure - Unwraps more than 20 incredible tales of treasures rescued from rubbish heaps, roadsides, dumpsters, and demolition sites, including an autographed script of the Academy Award®-winning 1935 John Ford movie The Informer, valued at $4,000 to $5,000; a rare circa 1885 Zuni pot, valued at $15,000 to $25,000; and precious relics from Louis Comfort Tiffany's Laurelton Hall mansion, valued at $80,000 to $100,000.

Politically Collect - Celebrates two great American traditions--electing and collecting--and commemorates political battles long past. Highlights include an extensive collection of campaign buttons; a court affidavit submitted by Jimmy Carter to the state of Maine on the eve of the 1976 Presidential election, appealing its decision to list him on the ballot as James Earl Carter; and signed photos of Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson, valued at $75,000.
