Recent finds include a 1960's vintage guitar purchased for $100,000. Four gold coins were purchased from a local resident for more than $72,000, Confederate money hidden in the walls of a residence that 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.

The roadshow will be held at Baymont Inn and Suites, 209 Commerce Dr. through April 2.
