Mark Moran, an antique appraiser on the Prairie Public series “Antique Road Show”, presented “What’s it Worth” at the Greenbush Public Library on Friday, February 10, beginning at 11:00 a.m.

Those interested in receiving appraisals of their antique(s) were asked to make advanced reservations.  It was reported that about 30 people took advantage of this opportunity at the local library.

Visitors brought a wide variety of items.  There were three Bisque head dolls with composition bodies, original hair and clothing, all over 100 years old and made in Germany – appraisal value – $250 total; a kerosene wall lamp with deflector was appraised at $100; lamps, tea pots, lanterns, framed pictures, blue glass milk/creamer bottles, photos, beautiful glassware, dishes, children’s toys, and a Batman helmet and cape, to name a few.

His itinerary also included visits at libraries in Warren, Red Lake Falls, Thief River Falls, Grygla, Warroad, Roseau, and Hallock, Minn.

Mark Moran and “What’s it Worth” was sponsored by the Northwest Regional Library and the Clean Water Land & Legacy Amendment.
