According to InForum, thousands of people had their heirlooms appraised during the show's visit to Bismarck:

Some of the highlights from the episodes include two Tlingit Shamanic masks representing a wolf and guardian, acquired during an 1890 missionary trip to Alaska and are now worth $250,000 and a Chinese Imperial ceremonial outfit, appraised at $100,000 to $150,000. There was also an original Santa Claus advertisement by Hadden Sundblom, who painted all of the Coca-Cola Santa paintings from around 1931-65 and a 1778 letter written and signed by George Washington, dated from Valley Forge.

'Antiques Roadshow' can be seen on Prairie Public Broadcasting throughout North Dakota.
