It’s a modern day goldrush as precious metal prices soar due to the unstable economy—it’s a seller’s market” , says Archie Davis, Roadshow Representative.
Clean out your attics, closets and lock boxes, because the Treasure Hunters Roadshow is com- ing to Cornwall . Roadshow experts are in town examining antiques, collectibles, gold and silver. While the Roadshow will accept anything that’s old, they will be focusing on: gold and silver coins made before 1964, military items, toys and trains, musical instruments, pocket and wrist watches. Scrap gold is expected to be a popular category this week due to soaring gold prices. Expert buyers for the roadshow have no- ticed a tremendous increase in the amount of gold coming to the Roadshow, and for good reason. Record gold prices have Roadshow “U.S. & CANADIAN COINS MADE B E FOR E 1967 AR E THE MOS T SOUGHT AFTER BY COLLECTORS.

Archie Davis, the Roadshow’s toy expert, spoke about some of the top toys get- ting great offers. “Old tin wind- up toys from the late 1800’s through the 1960’s are in great demand right now,” said Davis, “especially those that are char- acter related. Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, the Flintstones or any other character toys are sought after. Old Buddy L toys from the 1920’s to the 1960’s are especially in high demand.” Basically any toys made before 1965 are wanted. Train sets made by Lionel, American Flyer, Marklin and others have the po- tential to fetch a large sum. Da- vis also stressed, “Toys with box- es and in mint condition bring

sensational prices. Most of the toys that come to the Roadshow are not in perfect shape, but can still bring good prices from collectors.” When expert Tom Fuller was asked what he enjoyed most about working at the Road- show, he was quick to answer, “Old coins and paper currency—for as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated with collecting coins. I would go through the change in my parents’ grocery store, looking for rare dates and errors. Once, I found a silver quarter that I sold for $300. Not bad for an 8 year old.” Fuller went on to explain that any U.S. coins made before 1964 are the most sought after by collectors. Coins made before 1964 are 90% silver, and valuable because of either the silver content or even more valuable if one happens to be a rare date. Fuller explained, “We help people sort through their coins for unique dates. We buy all types of coins at the Roadshow—from wheat pennies to buffalo nick- els, and from single coins to entire truckloads. See you at the Roadshow.”
