    Appraisal Transcript:
    GUEST: They came down through my family, but other than that I don't know a whole lot about them.

    APPRAISER: They are labeled Josiah Loring in Boston, and of course you have the terrestrial and the celestial globe as well. They're in wonderful shape. I think that they date to the mid-19th century. A good auction estimate for your globes would be $10,000 to $15,000.

    GUEST: Boy! That's a surprise
