ANTIQUES ROADSHOW throws its hat in the ring with this special edition, a salute to the presidential election and the keepsakes of political battles long past. With objects that hail from red states and blue, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW campaigns for viewers with a winning slate of appraisals. Highlights include: an extensive and colorful collection of campaign buttons; a court affidavit submitted by Jimmy Carter to the state of Maine on the eve of the 1976 election appealing their decision to list him on the ballot as James Earl Carter; an heirloom desk and chair used at the United States House of Representatives from 1857 to 1873; and signed photos of Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson, valued at $75,000.  Learn more...
