On this episode of America’s Lost Treasures, Curt Doussett and Kinga Philipps host an open call for artifacts and items at the Museum of Natural History in Los Angeles, California. People from all over southern California show up to share their personal treasures and stories. The mission: to select one item that is worthy of being displayed in a special National Geographic exhibit.
Curt finds a 34-star American Flag, a C-melody saxophone and a dinosaur bone. He is certain one of these items is museum worthy. Kinga wants to learn more about three antique rifles, a light bulb possibly owned by Thomas Edison’s chief engineer and fish fossil. They each set out to investigate the history and value of their items in the hopes that they have discovered one of America’s Lost Treasures.
On their quest to find out more about their chosen items, Kinga and Curt visit a firearms expert, a jazz musician, an Antique Hardware store and a textile conservator. Which item is truly authentic, and unique enough to be chosen as this week’s America’s Lost Treasure? Tune in to find out!
