    Special: Vintage Secaucus (2012)

    In this vintage episode, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW dives back into the estuary city of Secaucus, New Jersey, to see if the objects ROADSHOW found there in 1997 have floated upstream or downstream over the past 15 years.

    ARTICLE: The "Stump Speaker" Bank

    Examining the cultural and racial dynamics of Jim Crow America embodied in many toys and collectibles from that era.

    BONUS FOOTAGE: The Seymour Card Table Goes to Auction

    After her appraisal in Secaucus, the owner of the Seymour card table estimated to be worth over $400,000 took her find to auction at Sotheby's. ROADSHOW FIV went along to find out what happened.

    HIGHLIGHT: Hermann Boehm Viennese Watch, ca. 1875

    Jonathan Snellenburg appraises a Viennese watch that once belonged to turn-of-the-century "Titan of Industry" J.P. Morgan. The watch may have traded well when the appraisal was taped in 1997, but how has this J.P. Morgan investment fared over the past few years?
