Antiques roadshow

Postby pizzathehutt » Sun Jun 23, 2019 9:16 pm

Anyone watch it tonight?

Original tie fighter helmet worth £200 grand

And one of the experts was asked what he’s seen go up and down in value over the years? His reply was ‘I’ve seen Star Wars figures sky rocket!!

There was one on the Antiques Roadshow back in 2014, valued at £50,000 back then, is it the same one?

Yes! That’s the one. The whole show was a re visit to things they’ve valued over the years and they are worth now or where the items are now.

The tie fighter helmet had a re valuation of 200k. They also showed some of that blokes collection which included the jack nicholson joker purple suit and stuff from aliens

What was the provenance of it like, do you think it would really have quadrupled in value since 2014 (sorry about the investor questions)?

I think it came from a a senior crew member who was given it after filming had completed and he had had it ever since, kept up in the loft. :)
