Great American Treasure Hunt coming to Cherokee

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Do you ever wonder what that old toy, class ring or piece of war memorabilia you have stashed away in your closet is worth? You might be sitting on a small fortune. Mark your calendar because the Great American Treasure Hunt and their specialists are coming to Cherokee, IA!

The dates are November 27, 28, 29, 30 & December 1 - Tuesday through Friday (9am - 6pm), and Saturday (9am - 4pm) at the VFW Cherokee. 113 E. Maple St. in Cherokee.

The Great American Treasure Hunt, which is free to the public, is a touring road show event which travels the North American continent. While the Great American Treasure Hunt will buy anything that is old, the focus will be on gold and silver jewelry, coins made before 1965, military items, toys and trains, musical instruments, pocket and wrist watches, costume jewelry, old US currency printed prior to 1964, and foreign coins.

If you are planning on attending, here are a few tips for visitors. Although the evaluation process is very quick, bring along a book to read because you may have to wait in line for 5 to 10 minutes depending on the day. Also, don't clean your items, it could damage them and ultimately lower its value. The specialists can see through the dirt and grime.

Finally, there is no limit to the number of items you can bring, they will evaluate it all. Even if you have unusually large items, they are available to assist you.
