GUEST: Well, I bought my first whistle at an antique show at Shaker Village in Canterbury. And I bought it because it was unusual; I'd never seen one.
APPRAISER: This is probably the single most valuable one, and I don't see much more than $100 in value in it.
APPRAISER: But if the whole collection were to come together at auction, I could see this bringing at least $600 and maybe as much as $800 or $900.
GUEST: (laughing) (toots) There you go.
