About the Find

One woman’s trash is another woman’s treasure…a $200,000 to $300,000 treasure to be exact! Back in 1997 in Secaucus, New Jersey, appraiser Leigh Keno and his brother Leslie met Claire, the owner of a magnificent mahogany labeled Seymour card table. Claire had purchased the piece for only $25 at a garage sale in the 1960s. Several weeks after bringing it to ROADSHOW, Claire called Keno to discuss selling the mahogany table. Hear from Keno about what happened after Secaucus and why keeping some grunge on your furniture is almost always a good thing!
