We're big fans of both the UK and US Antiques Roadshow series here at Paul Fraser Collectibles - not least becausethe edition's star antiques expert John Bly and his son Jamesare both onour collectibles expert panel.
Big stories we've reported on in the past include a British woman's big $160,000 surprise in 2010. That was the valuation given to her rare Prussian plate on the show.
Expect plenty more surprises when the US show tours later this year.
