New York's Attic: Antique appraisals at the Lake Placid train station
In this month's podcast of New York's Attic, professional appraiser Ted Comstock helped with a fundraiser that resembled the “Antiques Roadshow,” offering appraisal services free of charge while the public brought in antiques from home, hoping that their objects may be worth a lot of money. Even though it rarely works out that way, Comstock is sometimes surprised by what comes through the door.
On Aug. 13, Comstock volunteered his appraisal services at the Lake Placid-North Elba Historical Society’s Heritage Day, held at The History Museum in the Lake Placid train station. During the event, Lake Placid's Doug Hoffman learned about his cookie jar and Edison battery.
