Antiques Roadshow lol! Do any of you have something you save because you think it is worth money?

I hang on to stuff that I think is worth money, mybrother is the same way but since he moved in with mom he was throwing things away and I snatched up a board game of "The Waltons" and old comic books and a Burger King doll. Do you have any collectables?

  • My wedding rings. I bought them at a gun show (yes I said gun show lol) for $400 they are worth about $1500 but we haven't had them appraised. It was just a jeweler looking at them and he knew alot about jewelery. He said they were from the late 1900's but didn't know the maker because the mark had worn off. I love them and I plan on giving them to my oldest son (if he wants them) to give to his feance' one day. I have two sets of wedding bands so both my boys get one LOL they can decided which ones they want :)
