10-episode series, America’s Lost Treasures' Team it's coming to cities across America in search of historical objects with unexpected value
In the season finale, Curt Doussett and Kinga Philipps challenge residents of Orange County, Calif., to come up with their most precious lost treasures at the Bowers Museum of Cultural Art in Santa Ana. Kinga has no problem finding two great prospects: stone bowls that are possibly prehistoric and a sword and pistol from a 19th century sea captain. Curt spies a set of rare Native American baskets in excellent condition from the Owens Valley Paiute Indians, probably made between 1910 to 1940.
Curt and Kinga are at the Savannah History Museum, where they discover some incredible objects, including a Russian czar bench that came over on the first steamship to cross the Atlantic; a prehistoric tooth from the largest marine predator ever, the Megalodon shark; and some Lincoln portraits, which Curt hopes to prove were taken by legendary Civil War photojournalist Mathew Brady.
