"The Traveling Antiques Show"
by Randall L. Whipkey
When the television program "The Traveling Antiques Show" filmed
an episode in Summerset recently, Joan and four other local
residents had their antiques appraised on camera by the show's
experts. Each of the antiques, including the item that one of
the five found in the attic of a newly purchased home, has
some monetary value, but no two are worth the same amount of
money. Given the information that follows, you should be able
to find each antique owner's full name, what kind of piece he
or she owns, how he or she acquired the item, and its value
according to "The Traveling Antiques Show" appraiser.
- The total value of the five antiques appraised is $4,000,
with the most valuable worth $1,500.
- Yeager's item is worth more than the one that one of the
guests found in an old barn.

- The antique that one owner bought at an estate sale is
worth twice as much as the unopened bottle of Dr. Brophy's

$500 more than the Puzzle Jug, which is valued at $500 more

my Aunt Agatha."
- Sperry isn't the guest who found an antique at a flea
market in Wales.
