GUEST: It's a Tiffany paperweight that was owned by J.P. Morgan and family.
APPRAISER: In the back, we see a date of 1895. And it's a silver paperweight made by Tiffany & Co. And this wonderful piece of gold quartz in the middle is just phenomenal. Just the quantity of gold alone is quite valuable. The auction value for a paperweight like this is somewhere between $8,000 and $12,000 today.
GUEST: Wow, that's... (laughing) That's a lot of money.
