'Antiques Roadshow' appraisal takes a bizarre turn

Alvin Barr was ecstatic when he was told by “Antiques Roadshow” that a vase he bought at an estate sale for just $300 was worth as much as $50,000. But his joy was short-lived. The handmade piece turned out to be a high school art project made in 1973 by Betsy Soule in Oregon. The pot was initially identified as a late 19th or early 20th-century piece. But Soule contacted the series after a friend saw her creation on the show. The show has since revalued the vase at $3,000 to $5,000.
