[quote:AGENT_P:MV85Njg4MzVfMjcwMzIwNjdfMjEwRjgwMg==] I have dealt in Antiques for many years. I often give people more than what they want for an item. For example, I once had a chance to buy a set of Sterling flatware for $3. Yep, that's right, three dollars! I told the lady that it was Sterling, and I told her it was worth much more than she was asking, and I offered her $400 for it. I told her she could take it to a shop and maybe get more, but she still sold it to me anyways for my offer of $400. She was getting a fair deal too, as this was when Silver was about $8 an ounce. She was so grateful! If I see that the person is not monetarily advantaged, I will sometimes pay full value for an item, knowing I won't make any profit, but the satisfaction I get when I do something like that feels good, knowing that I am really helping someone else out. It all balances out, as there may be a time in the near future that I will buy a box lot at an auction for a few bucks, and there will be a $1,000 treasure in it. It happens quite a bit. I like to think that it is a reward for being fair to others when they need it. [/quote]
I can NOT believe that the HISTORY channel would show such a disgrace to our older generation. TO think for one minute this would somehow be cleared to air is appalling. To brag or somehow boast about an unsolicited visit to Leland's farm and the price paid versus the actual value should be illegal. If this would have been my granddad I would have felt robbed of my family heirloom and treasures. The History Channel should immediately cancel this show!!!!!!!!!!!!! We were so looking forward to a new show that was really about hidden treasures in American not thievery we couldn't even finish the show.
These guys are scum bags !!!!! Nice job History Channel way to promote thieves . I would love to meet these guys face to face , and work a deal out with them. If you know what I mean ! And my parents always told me crime doesn't pay, unless you make a show for the History Channel .Way to teach kids its ok to steal from the older generation. History Channel you should make things right pay these people fair price for their stuff, and fire these dirt bags
