The Treasure Hunters Roadshow will be in Richmond Hill through Saturday at the Quality Inn on Highway 17.
During the free event, about 1,200 residents are expected to bring in collectables. Specialists will be on hand to evaluate collectables such as: coins and paper currency issued prior to 1970, toys, dolls, trains, vintage jewelry, old and modern musical instruments, war memorabilia, gold and silver jewelry, costume jewelry, advertising memorabilia, swords, knives, daggers and anything unusual.
The treasure hunters will make offers based on rarity, collectability, condition and market value. Payment will be made on the spot if a price is agreed upon. A recent find includes a 1960’s vintage guitar purchased at an event for $100,000.
Hours of the event will be 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Jan. 31-Feb. 4 and 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Feb. 5.
