The International Collectors Association will present The Treasure Hunters Roadshow 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Thursday, and 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Friday at the Comfort Suites on Ben-Ali Drive in Danville.
The Treasure Hunters Roadshow is on a world-wide treasure hunt and will be in town for five days. During this free event, the Treasure Hunters are expecting to see more than 1,200 residents bringing in their rare and unusual collectibles. Locals will have a chance to talk to world renowned antique and collectible experts and it's all free.
Recent finds include a 1960's vintage guitar purchased for $100,000 and four gold coins were purchased from a local resident for over $72,000. Confederate money hidden in the walls of a residence recently was uncovered during a remodel and an Abraham Lincoln hand-written thank you letter, expressing gratitude for a night's stay while traveling to Chicago.
Danville is the next stop on the Treasure Hunters Roadshow world-wide tour. During this event at the Comfort Suites, the staff hopes to see items such as coins and paper currency issued prior to 1965, toys, dolls, trains, vintage jewelry, old and modern musical instruments, war memorabilia, gold and silver jewelry, costume jewelry, advertising memorabilia, swords, knives and daggers.
