The longest-serving FA Cup trophy has just become the most valuable item ever to appear on the Antiques Roadshow after it was valued at 'well over' £1 Million ($1.4 Million). 

The trophy was presented to winning teams from as early as 1911 and was used right up until 1992 when it was replaced by a new trophy after being deemed to fragile for use.
The trophy only just beat the Antiques Roadshow's previous 'most valuable'  record  held by a model of Sir Antony Gormley's Angel of the North sculpture which was valued at £1 Million.
It was first presented to Bradford City in 1911 after the side beat Newcastle United in a replay match and was the third version of the FA Cup to be used.
The trophy was valued by the Antique Roadshow's Alastair Dickenson at Harrogate's Royal Hall in an episode shown on Sunday evening.
