TV show description:
This reality TV series follows brothers Leigh and Leslie Keno, a pair of modern-day treasure hunters. They’re world-renowned antique experts and appraisers who have helped people all over the U.S. sell more than $1 billion worth of collectibles. The identical twins travel across the country, helping ordinary people find treasures right in their own homes.
Once the Kenos arrive at participants’ homes, they immediately begin their hunt for hidden gems. Some people have treasures while others have trash. They investigate items of interest using cutting-edge technology to determine an item’s authenticity, condition, and financial value. In these tough economic times, sometimes an item can end up being worth enough to fee a family from debt or pay for a college education.
The expert pair reveal the estimated auction values and ask if the owner(s) want to sell. If they do, viewers continue to follow the drama as it unfolds at the auction where the pieces are sold.
Episode four — The Native American, The Foreclosure & The Classic Car
The Keno brothers visit a family in the Catskills to assess their collection of Native American art. The family needs the funds to pay for cancer treatments. The Kenos also show up at a home in New Jersey to search their belongings and may have come across a one-of-a-kind antique car. Later, they travel to Georgia and hope to help a family avoid foreclosure on their home.
