Sunken Treasure

  • During our Appraisal Show a couple of weeks ago a fellow dealer at the Brass Armadillo Antique Mall in Denver asked us to appraise a picture he had bought at auction for $50. It was an original oil on canvas by renowned wildlife artist, Bonnie Marris. It depicts a wolf (or wolves) in 5 scenes. We appraised it at $10,000-15,000. Dealers who've been around for years often say that all the good stuff is gone. I'll highlight some recent examples of how that is very much not the case. Do you know Forrest Fenn? He buried a large metal box full of gold in the Rocky Mountains 7 years ago and wrote a poem full of clues to help guide the intrepid to its whereabouts. That Sunken Treasure is still out there waiting to be found, and so are a lot of other hidden gems, like the Bonnie Marris painting. Please join us this coming Sunday, Christmas Eve, for this week's program on finding Sunken Treasure. (By the way, there's a section in our Blogs entitled, Sunken Treasure. If you've got a story, please share it with us.) We're on at 5PM PST, 6PM MST, 7PM CST, 8PM EST. Happy Holidays! Gary
