Hello and welcome to For What It's Worth.
Now, if you love quizzes and you have a nose for a bargain,
you are in for a treat.
We have three pairs of contestants who are ready to play
and each team has a quizzer,
who has to answer a general knowledge question correctly,
so that your partner, the picker,
has a chance to choose an antique or collectible and build a collection.
And the aim of the game is to amass the most valuable collection.
Every day on the show, we are surrounded by beautiful objects,
and there is currently one staring straight at me.
Please welcome our resident antiques expert, Natasha Raskin.
-I like this. It's lovely.
-You're looking absolutely gorgeous.
-Thank you very much.
-Now, run through the lots
that we have on offer today.
We have some plates, a necklace...
..a joss stick holder...
..a cycling toy,
a cigarette case,
a cruet set,
an inkwell and watch,
a car badge,
a pocket watch
and a singing box.
Now, one of those items is our top lot
which is worth a whopping £2,500.
That obviously is the lot to spot, teams,
because at the end of the show,
the winning pair will walk away with
the cash equivalent of one of their items. But beware,
because the items decrease in value right down to our worthless lot,
which is £10 or less.
That, obviously, is the lot to avoid.
So, who is playing today?
Team one, who are you?
Hi, Fern. I'm Richard.
This is my long-suffering wife, Jane.
We've been married for 40 years this year, so we are almost antique.
Aww! Welcome, Jane and Richard.
And team two, who are you?
Hi Fern, I'm David and this is my friend Gerald.
I met Dave a few years ago at the Birmingham Motorbike Show
and we struck up a lovely bromance up there, so there we go.
A bromance built on motorbikes.
-Brilliant. Welcome, Gerald and Dave.
And team three, who are you?
Hi, Fern. My name is Kate and this is my husband, Simon.
We're both maths teachers from Lancashire.
Welcome, team three.
Now, earlier, our teams got to inspect our lots, watched over -
spied over, really - by our expert, Natasha.
But could they separate masterpieces from the mass-produced?
Right, then. Let's have a look at what we've got.
-These look interesting.
-Yeah, there's quite a choice.
I can't see any hallmark.
Yes, there is. Right at the base.
Looks like it's been used... It has been used, yeah.
Don't get that on your shirt.
Clock face on it.
Is it silver?
It doesn't look like there's any stamps on them.
Don't miss them. They're there.
So they are not silver, they are plastic.
They feel plastic, don't they?
What about these?
Looks like an ashtray.
Sort of thing Granny has, isn't it?
It's a no to the plates. Too grannyish.
OK, so there is a British Lion, so it's silver.
It's not moulded. It feels cut-glass.
-Oh, it's one of those.
The bird is supposed to tweet, isn't it?
-I don't know if that's enamel.
-I like that.
-I do like that.
If they're first edition, they could be worth a fortune.
The Last Chronicle Of Barset.
I think there is possibly value in them.
So, '30s and '40s, I would say, for something like that.
That's seen a war.
The box is OK, it's reasonable condition.
But the box is there, that's what matters.
Brooklands. That's famous cos that's where the oval track was.
I wouldn't say it was extremely valuable.
That is lovely.
They're just looking at the clock. They don't care about the case.
Look at the detail on the back.
Ah! She's clocked that beautiful design.
-There's a hallmark in there.
-Yeah, there is.
So it is silver.
-Gilded on the inside.
925, which is nine-carat gold.
925 is not nine-carat gold!
They're pearls, aren't they?
-Are they diamonds?
-Well, it could be.
It doesn't look that expensive to me. I mean,
-depends on the quality of the pearl.
That's exactly what it all depends on.
Face in the 14.
-Fairly mass-produced, I think.
-Yeah, late 21st century!
So, we are going with the inkwell.
-The singing box.
We're going for the cruet set.
-Cos I think there's value in there with it being silver.
The bottom lot is the joss stick holder.
The joss stick holder.
-And we need to ask more questions about the books.
That must have been so much fun!
-It was so much fun.
-Listening in to them.
I was killing myself laughing at some of your nonsense,
because of course, you didn't think anyone was watching.
Now, how is the valuation settled on with our lots here?
All the valuations have been determined by myself
and an independent valuer. We've agreed on them together.
And the value has been determined by the price we would expect them
to achieve at auction, but before any auction costs have been added.
Right. Just to add an extra twist, we have our mystery lot.
It could be worth thousands or it could be worth peanuts,
but that is for the winner to decide a little bit later.
But, for now, it's time for Round One.
I'm going to ask eight general knowledge questions.
Pickers, before each question,
I'll ask you to select which lot you would like to play for
and then, quizzers, if you buzz in with the correct answer,
you get to add that to your collection.
But beware - buzz in incorrectly
and you will be frozen out of the next question.
So, pickers, please make your first pick.
And let's see what you've chosen.
Jane and Richard have gone for the inkwell and the watch.
Gerald and Dave have gone for the singing box.
And Simon and Kate for the cycling toy.
Quizzers, fingers on buzzers, here comes question one.
Debbie Harry is a founder member of which iconic...?
-It is Blondie.
Debbie Harry is a founder member of which iconic US band?
Blondie is correct.
The singing box starts off your collection.
Pickers, make a pick.
Jane and Richard have gone again for the inkwell and the watch.
Gerald and Dave have gone for the cycling toy.
And so have Simon and Kate again.
Right, quizzers, fingers on buzzers.
Question two. To which European country does Crete belong?
It is Greece, correct, well done.
That cycling toy is safe and starts off your collection.
Pickers, pick again.
Jane and Richard, the books.
Gerald and Dave, the pocket watch.
Simon and Kate, the cruet set.
And here is the question for the quizzers.
In the TV series Doctor Who, which evil race was created by Davros?
It is the Daleks. Correct.
The cruet set is in your collection.
Next picks, please, pickers.
Jane and Richard, sticking with the books.
Gerald and Dave sticking with the pocket watch.
And Simon and Kate have gone for the joss stick holder.
Quizzers, question four.
In cookery, the name of which French food translates into English
as "flight in the wind"?
I'll give you the answer. It is vol-au-vent.
Pickers, please make a pick.
Jane and Richard sticking with the books.
Gerald and Dave still with the inkwell and the watch,
Simon and Kate still with the joss stick holder.
OK, quizzers, question five.
The Shepherd's Crown is the final novel
by which bestselling British fantasy writer?
It is Terry Pratchett.
Right. The inkwell and watch are in your collection.
Pickers, make your pick.
Jane and Richard, the books.
Gerald and Dave, the pocket watch.
Simon and Kate, the joss stick holder.
Before adopting the euro in 1999,
which country had an official currency called the markka?
Incorrect. You are frozen out of the next question.
The correct answer is Finland.
Everybody except Kate, please pick.
Oh! Jane and Richard and Gerald and Dave
have both gone for the pocket watch.
Here's question seven.
Odette and Prince Siegfried are the principal characters
in which Tchaikovsky ballet?
Incorrect. It's Swan Lake.
I'm so sorry. You're frozen out of the next round.
But, Simon and Kate, you're back in.
This is the final question.
Pickers, please pick.
Gerald and Dave going for the pocket watch,
but Simon and Kate love that joss stick holder.
The final question of this round.
For which country did cricketer Sachin Tendulkar...?
Incorrect. It's India.
-I knew it was one or the other.
-The full question is -
for which country did cricketer Sachin Tendulkar
score almost 16,000 test runs?
And it was India.
So, at the end of Round One,
Jane and Richard are yet to start building a collection,
but Gerald and Dave,
they have the singing box and the inkwell and watch.
And Simon and Kate have the cycling toy and the cruet set.
Now, our teams have started to build their collections,
but have they chosen wisely?
Before they have the chance to add more of them,
Natasha is going to give each pair a fact about a lot of their choice,
which should be everything they need to know to make a valuation.
So, team one, we're starting with you.
Jane, you are a retired midwife?
-What do you like to collect?
I've got small collection of Moorcroft pottery,
and Richard's just started collecting bronzes as well, so...
Very nice. And, Richard, your collection of bronzes,
I think they're all nude women?
Not all nude, Fern.
They're semi-naked. I like the female form, and...
I don't like anything too ornate.
Very good. What would you like to know more about?
You can ask for something in somebody else's collection,
or something that's on the grid.
The singing box.
I was quite intrigued with that.
I think everybody was quite intrigued by it,
and of course it's now in someone else's collection.
What on earth is a singing box?
Well, it's a box, usually rectangular in shape,
which contains a miniature automaton singing bird
concealed below an oval lid
and activated by the means of an operating lever,
which you all figured out.
Its origins are found in the city of Geneva,
and it was invented in the 18th century,
but immediately it became a hugely popular item to own,
to covet, and to delight everyone,
from kings and queens to wee children alike.
So, how exactly can you tell a quality one
from a mere trinkety-type one?
Well, the quality of the sound,
the workmanship involved in the case,
and whether or not that wee birdie inside is in perfect condition.
However, this piece was made for the export market
in the style of the 18th century,
but it only dates to the 1950s.
So, how does this fairly recent date affect its value?
-Well, I hope that helps a little bit.
Let's meet Gerald and Dave.
Welcome to the show.
Now, Gerald, you love the British Museum.
I'm a Friend of the British Museum. It's quite nice to go there
and go to the front of the queue when they've got an exhibition on
and just wave your card and walk through.
-I love that.
-And, Dave, what do you like to collect?
I've got quite an extensive collection of vintage Star Wars toys.
There's probably four, five items which I still need to collect
and I've got pretty much the full set.
What's your favourite figure?
I'm a big Luke Skywalker fan
and I've probably got 30 to 40 Luke Skywalker figures
dating back from... played-with condition
to untouched by a human hand.
So that's how they're going to stay.
Wow! What would you like to know more about today?
-I would like to know more about the books, please.
The books, yes. So let me tell you. I think you all spotted the title,
The Last Chronicle Of Barset.
And that is the final book in a series of six,
and that series is often referred to as The Chronicles Of Barsetshire.
Now, the author, again, it's mentioned on the cover, Anthony Trollope,
and he was one of the most prolific novelists in the Victorian era,
very popular. Now, this was the question on everyone's lips.
Is this a first edition?
Yes, these volumes are first edition.
But they're a slightly later issue copy from 1867.
Now, they retain their original
bright-blue cloth and elaborate gilt covers,
and the bindings, importantly, are unworn.
However, they are slightly darkened,
and the upper joint on the first volume is stained.
So, does that mean this detracts
from what could be judged a more superior copy?
OK, thank you.
Lovely to have you here, Simon and Kate.
Simon, let's hear a bit more about you.
Maths teacher, you say you're proud to be a maths geek.
Absolutely. Love maths, and I just want to pass on
my knowledge to the next generation of young adults.
-You're a teacher as well, aren't you?
-Deputy head of the sixth form?
Oh! Must be great spending a night with you two.
That's where we met. We met training to be maths teachers.
How interesting. What would you like to know more about?
I think I would like to know more about the car badge.
The car badge.
It's an original Brooklands Automobile Racing Club
committee members car badge.
And it was produced by Spencer of London in the 1830s.
And as you can see, the badge is enamelled in various colours,
and it retains that lovely original chrome plating as well.
So it's in pretty good condition.
It would have been fitted to the front of their vehicle
almost like a badge of honour.
But is that enough for it to be something you want to drive off with
on For What It's Worth?
Hm, interesting. I hope that's helped.
OK, time to play Round Two.
In this round, the pickers will select a lot to play for
and the quizzers will again try to secure it by answering correctly.
But this time around, the lots come with their own question categories,
and here they are.
So if you wanted the cigarette case with the horse's head on it,
I would ask you if you would like to choose
between sporting venues or US states.
At the end of this round,
the team with the least valuable collection will be eliminated,
so choose as wisely as you can.
Team one, you're up first, so, Richard, what's your lot?
I think I'll go for the pocket watch, Fern.
The pocket watch. Right, Jane, how are you on modern art, or US states?
I'll try US states.
US states, here's your question.
What is the largest US state by population?
The pocket watch is yours.
And there it is in your collection.
Dave, what would you like to go for?
I would like to go for the cigarette case, please.
Cigarette case - sporting venues or US states, Gerald?
I'll do US states.
US states. Here's your question.
Alaska and which other state
share no land borders with the rest of the US?
The cigarette case is yours.
Kate, what would you like?
I'd like to go for the books, please.
The books - sporting venues or musical instruments, Simon?
-It'll have to be sporting venues, please.
The World Snooker Championships are played in which Sheffield theatre?
-The books are yours.
From now on, you can either go for what's left on the grid
or you can try to steal a lot that's in a rival team's collection.
Strategy, OK? Pickers, though, be warned,
because if you choose to steal from another team,
they get the chance to choose what category your quizzer must face.
And just one rule here -
you can't steal from a team who has only one lot in their collection.
So, Jane and Richard, you're safe.
Team one, do you want to pick from the grid
or are you ready to steal from a rival?
I'd like to steal the inkwell.
From Gerald and Dave.
Gerald and Dave, you can confer.
Which category would you like to give to Richard?
-Or plant life?
-Go on, yes. Modern art.
Jane, here's your question on modern art.
A collective known as Assemble won which major art prize in 2015?
The Turner Prize?
Correct! It is the Turner Prize.
So the inkwell and the watch go into your collection.
Sorry, Gerald, sorry, Dave.
-But now here's your turn.
Dave. Do you want to pick or steal?
-I'll steal, please.
-Yes? What do you want to steal?
The inkwell and watch!
OK, Jane and Richard, which category would you like to offer Gerald?
We'll try musical instruments, Fern.
Musical instruments. That might be good, cos Gerald pulled a face.
OK, musical instruments. Here we go. The question is this.
The tuba is the biggest instrument in which section of an orchestra?
-Brass is correct!
-The inkwell and watch come back to your collection.
Come home, come home!
And there it is.
Right, Kate, pick or steal?
-What would you like?
-The joss stick holder, please.
You're very keen on this, aren't you?
OK, the joss stick holder.
Plant life or US states, Simon?
I'll go for US states.
Which state comes last alphabetically?
Oh, that's a good one.
Oh, I nearly said Wyoming!
Joss stick holder stays firmly on the grid.
Richard, are you going to pick or steal?
I'll attempt to steal the inkwell back, please.
OK. Gerald and Dave, what category would you like to give Jane?
-Sporting venues, please.
How do you feel about that, Jane?
-Here we go.
Which major golf event is played at Augusta, Georgia?
Oh, that's the Masters.
Correct, it is the Masters.
The inkwell and watch come back to you.
OK. Dave, pick or steal?
-Steal, please, Fern.
-Oh? What would you like to steal?
Um...the inkwell and watch, please.
Oh, you surprise me(!)
OK. What question category, Jane and Richard,
would you like to give Gerald?
Here we go, Gerald.
What gas do plants turn into glucose during photosynthesis?
Ohh! It's like a boomerang, this inkwell and watch,
it's coming back to you.
Simon and Kate, quietly playing a game of their own.
-Pick or steal.
-Oh, what do you want?
-The inkwell, please.
-If they're fighting for it, you think, "Oh, that's more..."
-I've got to get in there.
-Yeah, we may as well have a go at that one.
Gerald and Dave, what category would you like to give Simon?
US states. US states.
I'm going to stick my neck out and go sporting venues.
Here we go, Simon.
During the 2014 Commonwealth Games,
which Scottish stadium hosted the athletics events?
I'll have a guess. Hampden Park?
At the last minute.
Every time he said "sporting venues", I sat there going,
"Please pick sporting venues."
-The inkwell and watch is yours.
-Thank you very much.
Wow, that's the end of the round,
so let's see how the collections are looking.
Well, Jane and Richard have the pocket watch.
Gerald and Dave have the singing box
and the cigarette case.
Simon and Kate have the cycling toy,
the books, the inkwell and watch,
and the cruet set.
For one team, it is now the end of the road.
So, Natasha, who is leaving us first?
The pair leaving us first, and therefore with the least-valuable collection...
-..is Jane and Richard.
Jane and Richard, you've played so well,
and the pocket watch is beautiful, but it is leaving the game.
Natasha, tell us what the pocket watch is worth.
This is an English pocket watch, late 18th-century is the date.
Now, this one comes with a rather intricate under-painted horn case,
and it's got a scene of a lady beside a garden monument.
Now, to paint that case,
the artist would have had to paint in reverse
and then flick the top over to form the front of the piece.
Beautifully done. Now, apart from Katie,
pretty much all of you ignored the case,
and were looking at the watch itself,
but it's the case that adds the value.
And its value? £900.
So, well done for spotting a beautiful lot.
Oh, it's been a pleasure to have you here,
but the time has come to bring the hammer down on your collection
and say thank you for playing For What It's Worth.
-Thank you, Fern.
Also, the unclaimed items in the grid are now leaving the game,
so let's quickly find out from Natasha what they're worth
and if the top lot is still in the game.
Yes, we're losing quite a few.
Five left on the grid.
So, what's going?
Well, let's start off with this lovely ornate pair of -
wait for it - silver candlesticks.
-Not plastic, Simon, you're not...
-It felt like plastic.
They date from the early 1900s
and, overall, they're in pretty good condition.
Now, less common than the regular kind,
this style are called dwarf candlesticks,
and that's due to their comparative height.
So, there's less silver for your money.
But what is that value?
Well, they're only £60 worth, so don't worry about them at all.
And then we move on to the car badge.
Have you let go of something seriously valuable?
Have you let it ride away?
I think £100 max.
Times that by five.
£500 for the card badge.
But the condition is so good, and that is so important.
Now, what we have here is a rather lovely - and this is all important -
natural pearl necklace.
It has got a gold linked body, it's intricately patterned,
and that all builds towards that large pearl focal-point pendant,
and that's what's the real star of the show.
This is a serious bit of jewellery.
I have to say, dismissed by everybody in front of me,
and what you dismissed was jewellery worth £800.
And now we are onto our joss stick holder.
It's white glazed and it's blanc de Chine,
and that is a traditional European term for Chinese porcelain.
Guess when it was made.
That 2014 on the base is when it was exhibited, not when it was made,
and this was made... Oh, Dave, you're kicking yourself.
This was made during the reign of the Kangxi Emperor,
the second ruler of the Qing Dynasty,
but it's only worth £425.
Right. And then we move on to these plates.
Gerald and Dave, the granny plates is what you dubbed them -
are you going to kick yourself?
Granny-ish though they may be, they are decorated
with a lovely pair of cherubs.
Playful little figures on an elaborate surround.
They are designed and hand-painted,
so pretty lovingly made.
Also, what do we always say about a pair?
It is always a bonus.
Should you have been more interested in these plates?
The were today's worthless lot.
Well done, well done. It's out of the game.
Oh, congratulations. You've got rid of the bottom lot, well done,
which means the £2,500 item is still in play.
Somewhere, someone has got it in their collection.
OK, teams, you now have one last chance to pick our expert's brains.
Which lot do you need to know more about, Gerald and Dave?
I'd like to know more about the toy, please, Fern.
The toy? OK. And that is sitting in Simon and Kate's collection.
Well, let me tell you boys about this toy.
It's a vintage one known as a gyro cycle,
and it was produced in the late 1930s,
and that was by the company Tri-ang.
It's called a gyro cycle
because it has a gyroscope built into the front wheel,
activated by a winding cord.
I think all of you were quite interested in the workings of it.
And this model is in very good condition for its age,
apart from a tiny bit of damage to the cyclist's hands
and a little bit of rust for good measure.
Now, crucially for a toy, it's in its original box,
which also shows some signs of wear and tear.
So, it's a charming toy, but how much is it worth to you?
I'll let you think about that while we go to Simon and Kate.
What would you like to know more about?
-The cruet set, please.
-The cruet set?
Let me tell you more about this George III silver-framed cruet set,
complete with five eclectic bottles and stand.
It's properly hallmarked on the underside of the stand,
indicating that it's solid sterling silver,
made in 1771
by Jabez Daniell and James Mince,
and the exclusively made casters and cruet sets, that was their game.
Nowadays, the specialised nature of the work
is a massive selling point.
However, some of their cruet sets are, of course, finer than others,
and the range in sale values is really quite broad.
So, where does this lie on the spectrum?
Hmm. It's now time for our final round and, at the end of it,
we'll have our winners.
In this round, I will show you a category and 12 possible answers.
Nine of the answers are correct, three are not.
As it's the final round, both quizzers and pickers will play,
so there is nowhere to hide.
Pick a wrong answer and your opponents will be able
to steal a lot from your collection.
The pair with the most valuable collection
can choose to go first or second,
so, Natasha, who is that at the moment?
The pair with the more valuable collection right now...
is Gerald and Dave.
Ooh. There, you see,
it's quality not quantity, isn't it, in this game?
All right, here we go.
The first question.
So we are looking for the name of any mountain in the UK
which is preceded by the word "Ben".
Gerald and Dave, do you want to go first or second in this?
-We'll go second.
-OK. Right, we'll go second.
You'll go second? OK. Simon and Kate, here are the answers.
Remember, three of those, somewhere, are incorrect.
Simon, give me an answer.
I'm not very good with Bens,
but I definitely know there's a Ben Nevis.
-Let's have a look.
The highest mountain in the British Isles, in fact. Gerald.
The second-highest mountain in the British Isles.
Lui? Is that correct?
Yes, it is.
The Southern Highlands of Scotland. Dave.
Ben Lomond. Is that correct?
Yes, that's correct.
On the shores of Loch Lomond.
Well done. That's correct.
Gerald, give me an answer.
Lawers. Is it correct?
Naseby. Is that correct?
That's the Battle of Naseby, I believe.
OK, let's see the other answers.
So, Loa is incorrect.
It's a Hawaiian volcano.
Now, there is a Ben Chiefly, but he was an Australian Prime Minister.
OK, Gerald and Dave, what would you like to steal from Simon and Kate?
Well, I love that inkwell,
but I quite like that cycling toy as well.
Hmm. Boys with the toys.
-Shall we have the toy?
-Yeah, let's have the toy.
-The toy, please.
The cycling toy is going into your collection.
Oh, Simon is not happy about that.
OK, Simon and Kate, your question is...
Would you like to go first or second?
Might as well go first.
First? OK, let's have a look at the answers.
-Where's the great white?
Simon, give me an answer.
Let's go for milk shark.
Milk shark. Is that correct?
Gerald, an answer, please.
The zebra shark.
I'll go with an anchor shark.
Dave, have you watched Finding Nemo?
It's the shark in that.
I'm so sorry. Let's have a look at the other answers.
And the wrong ones are the Hooper shark.
That was the surname - Hooper -
of the Richard Dreyfus character in Jaws.
And the left shark is an internet sensation,
who's famous for his dancing.
Simon and Kate, your turn to steal, what would you like?
I think the cigarette case. I'm not convinced with the singing box.
Right, OK, yes.
Cigarette case, please.
The cigarette case with the horse's head on it is yours.
Gerald and Dave, here's your question.
Oasis UK top ten hits.
Gerald and Dave, this is the last question in this round.
-Do you want to go first or second?
-Yeah, go first, please.
First? Here are the answers...
Yes, of course that's right, that was number two in 1995.
Simon, have you got an answer?
Roll With It?
Roll With It.
Correct. Also number two in 1995.
I'll go with Go Let It Out.
Go Let It Out.
Yes, that was number one in the year 2000.
-Some Might Say.
Some Might Say.
Correct. Number one in 1995.
The Importance Of Being Idle.
The Importance Of Being Idle.
Yes, number one in 2005.
-Not a big Oasis fan, to be honest.
There's No Other Way.
There's No Other Way.
-Oh! That was a Blur hit, not Oasis.
Let's have a look at the other answers, which ones were wrong?
Saturday Night, that was a hit for Whigfield.
Something Changed, that was a hit for Pulp.
-OK, Gerald and Dave.
-Prepare to steal.
Yes, we'll have our cigarette case back, please.
-Cigarette case is going back to you.
There it is. Well, that's it,
your collections are complete and fixed
and will determine which team is victorious.
Natasha, who are today's winners?
Yes, a lot of toing and froing and it was a brilliant battle,
but the team with the more valuable collection
and therefore today's winners are...
It was Gerald and Dave.
Well done, gents. Well done.
Fantastic. Commiserations, Simon and Kate.
You've played heroically and brilliantly.
You'll want to know the value of things in your collection, won't you?
-Yes, we'll start off with the books.
We know they're sort of first editions
and we know they're very fragile,
but what was their value?
Well, they're only worth £250.
But let's move on to the cruet set, because I'm very impressed,
Kate and Simon, you were the only ones who found the hallmarks
on the underside of the frame,
and you kind of really quietly took those into your collection,
and no-one fought for them and do you know their value?
This cruet set is worth £1,000.
But you were not the only ones to spot this inkwell and pocket watch,
because what on earth was going on there?
It went from Jane and Richard,
to Dave and Gerald and then it came to you.
Now, it's a rather impressive early 19th century
and the watch has diamond end-stones,
a white enamel dial and gilt handles,
so everything's good quality here.
It's value was, however, £600.
That means that your total collection value was £1,850.
Not quite enough.
Unfortunately we have to say goodbye to you,
because the hammer's come down on your collection,
but thank you for playing For What It's Worth.
Thank you very much.
Well done, Gerald and Dave.
Now, all that remains is for you to claim your prize.
All you have to do is pick one of the lots in your collection
and we'll give you its value in cash.
So, which one do you want to choose?
I like that horse's head, but we've always been drawn to the singing box.
Singing box got us both from the beginning.
-From the beginning.
I'm happy to stick with that, but...
Yeah. And it does flap its wings.
It does, and the bird in the middle was good.
-And it was solid.
-And it was solid.
We'll stick. I think we'll just go with what we started with.
-Stick with our instincts.
-Stick to the instinct
-and go for the singing box.
-Singing box, please.
Well, let's see what the things you haven't won are worth.
Yes, let's start off with that bicycle toy, the gyro bike.
One of our other contestants pointed out
this lived through a war, you know,
this has seen serious stuff and still, it's in immaculate condition,
but what's it worth?
That's all we're waiting to hear.
So, you made the right decision there, but this is crunch time.
So, we haven't talked about the cigarette case.
Hand-painted enamels, made in Austria in 1920.
This one is marked "925 silver",
so it meets the British Sterling standard.
You hardly ever see such a fine horse's head
the cigarette case is worth £350,
which means that the singing box is today's top lot, £2,500!
Well done, you played a blinder.
-Well done, Gerald and Dave,
you have won the value of the singing box.
We know it's the top lot,
but can we tempt you to swap it for the mystery lot,
which could we worth even more?
Here it is, Gerald and Dave,
this is your lot and we know it's worth £2,500.
But the game isn't over yet.
Natasha's going to try and tempt you with today's mystery lot.
Natasha, what have we got?
-Well, are you ready?
I'm sure you've got a few ideas as to what it is.
Here we go.
OK, this lot comprises an RAF gunner's field service cap,
tunic, and a pair of flying trousers.
Now, dating back to World War II,
all are in surprisingly immaculate condition.
Now, unfortunately, there's no known provenance for this lot,
but just as an example,
to give you an idea of the significance or provenance
of uniforms such as these,
a 1960s army uniform belonging to Elvis Presley, no less,
sold at auction last year for, wait for it, £20,000.
So, what have we got here? We've got three items, one lot,
and Fern is going to ask you one very important question.
This is a big decision. I can see, Dave,
that you're licking your lips.
I know, I know.
What is it that you love about this uniform?
I love war memorabilia, and the singing box was...
I don't know, but seeing that now, yeah, it's swung me a little bit.
We know that we've got £2,500 here, in theory.
Yeah, I'll stick with, we'll stick with the box.
-We'll stick with the box.
-Right, final decision?
Final decision, Gerald?
-We've had a good day, haven't we?
-We've had a great day, let's not...
-We'll stick with the bird.
-We'll stick with the bird.
-Thank you very much.
But...what have you thrown away?
What have we thrown away, Dave?
This has likely seen service,
and look at the condition of it.
I personally have never seen a uniform in such immaculate condition,
especially not from World War II,
and I think the fact that this condition is so good
-is going to haunt you, gentlemen.
Because of the value of the uniform...
-It's also high.
-Gerald, you look worried.
-I am worried.
-I'm not surprised.
Well done! A valuable lot, but not more valuable.
-Provenance, provenance, provenance.
-I was tempted,
but stick to the guns.
-Yes, you were tempted.
-I was wilting there.
-You guys made a great team, well done.
Gerald, you stuck to your guns through that one.
Like a gunner!
Congratulations. So, today,
Gerald and Dave are going home with £2,500!
-Whoo! Congratulations, really well done.
-You had me going there,
you really had me going.
-It's a bit cruel, isn't it?
-It was wicked.
-Natasha, thank you so much, as always,
for lending us all your skills and acting skills.
-Very good indeed.
-She's good, isn't she?
Bafta on the way.
Look for to seeing you again very soon and we'll see you too,
when more teams will be trying to spot the lot to win the lot
on For What It's Worth. I'll see you next time.
Goodbye for now. Bye!
