Long Description: 
Just when you thought ANTIQUES ROADSHOW couldn't possibly have more great discoveries to share, comes this special edition. "Junk in the Trunk" is a new episode of never-before-seen appraisals from ROADSHOW's 2011 season. Highlights include one of a set of six inherited chairs, made 50 years ago by a furniture designer who also did commissions for Aristotle Onassis; a rare and extensive collection of WWII prison camp materials that posthumously established a glider pilot's eligibility for a medal from the U.S. Department of Defense; and a drawing and lithograph by iconic American artist Grant Wood, as well as a trunk containing some of his possessions, acquired by the owner from Wood's aunt and valued at $14, 000 to $22,000.
