Michelle's life ring is made from copper. It was determined to date to the mid 1900s, and valued around $100. Melissa's mermaid collectable was determined to be made out of copper, and valued at around $150.

Les and Seth said Carol's grandmother's broach is only worth about $30-$40, but that these art nouveau-style broaches are very popular and sell very quickly.

Rita's bayonette was detemined to be a reproduction, but was still valued at around $75-$100.

Les and Seth believe Debbie's wolf figurine is a souvenier of sorts from Italy, and Debbie says her family came from Italy in 1915. It was valued around $50-$75.
