Long Description: 
Host Mark L. Walberg meets appraiser Rafael Eledge aboard the USS Midway, the longest-serving U.S. Navy aircraft carrier of the 20th century, to discuss the evolution of a 19th-century sailor's side arm: the cutlass. Highlights include an 18th-century ivory carved creche that could be worth up to 30 times what the owner paid for it; a beautifully preserved banner from George Washington's inauguration ball; and a circa 1900 Turkmenistan rug, valued at $125,000 to $150, 000.
