GUEST: I brought a silver presentation cup that was awarded to a judge. I know that he was instrumental in the secession of the state of South Carolina.
APPRAISER: His name was Judge Magrath. And on November 6, 1860, the United States elected Abraham Lincoln. On November 7, 1860, he gets in front of his court and he resigns. It was one of the first acts of secession. And in honor... to honor him, the people of the city of Charleston gave him this goblet. It was actually made up north and imported down south. And on the bottom, we have the retailer mark of Hayden and Whilden. They only used that mark from about 1855 to 1863. So we have a beautiful piece of Southern retail silver. It would probably bring about $10,000 in a retail situation.
GUEST: That's amazing.
