[quote:Anonymous Coward 10467284:MV85Njg4MzVfMjk1NDU5MTlfOEEzRDc2MEE=] [quote:lapis lazuli 847343:MV85Njg4MzVfMTUxMjg1NzRfNDU4NTZBOQ==] I actually had a similar reaction at one point last night. When they bought that samurai sword for $200 I thought they were stealing him blind. Turns out the thing is only worth four or $500. Big deal. If they had Not gone in there, found it and rescued it, it's likely it just would've rusted away to nothing. Thing you don't realize is that most of these treasures they find are sitting in the back of somebody's yard or in somebody's barn rusting on rotting away. If they don't buy them and restore them chances are they will be thrown away into the junk pile. The idea that their kids or somebody is going to inherit this stuff and then restore it or what ever?nonsense. When kids inherit grandpas farm that's loaded with a bunch of old rotting rusty crap -- they throw it all away. That's what happens. Leeland obviously doesn't have the energy or the impetus to dig around in his belongings and put them up for sale himself. These people actually performed him a service by showing up with cash. Now you can probably afford another three months of high blood pressure medication or whatever. [/quote] [/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
