She said she bought the book for just $2 at an after-estate sale and was hoping to at least double her money, which would make her a total of $4 bucks. But to her surprise, the book was worth a small fortune.

"It probably has an auction estimate in this condition of $6,000-$8,000," the appraiser explained.

The woman lost it, saying, "Oh my god, are you serious?! Oh my goodness! Woohoo!"

She found book, titled, "The Laws and Revolutions of Women's Rights" in a box full of other books on the floor. It was published in 1632 although the author was unknown, and it did have some damage and a massing page in the front. The appraiser said overall, it was in pretty good condition and was quite rare.

Fans on Facebook were loving the episode, calling the girl's appraisal awesome for $2 purchase.

And tweeters agreed, calling the book a great find and the woman's reaction priceless.
