PLATTSBURGH - Collectors expect $300,000 to be distributed to Plattsburgh residents this coming week for antiquities, collectibles, and gold and silver items.
The Ohio Valley Refinery and Roadshow travels across the globe in search of rare and unique items. During this event, local residents will have the exciting opportunity to sit with experts from around the world and sell their items to collectors.
A few residents have recently sold items, including a rare gold coin collection purchased for $107,000, a Civil War pistol used during battle for $40,000, and a letter written by George Washington to the doctor of his wife expressing his disdain toward the doctor's actions regarding the treatment of his wife.
