Everybody loves a good “get rich overnight” story, right? Well, the man in the video below was lucky enough to be the main character of such a story. And all the events that led to him becoming a wealthy man were captured as part of “Antiques Roadshow.”
If you haven’t heard about this show until now, you should know it’s actually a British television show in which antiques appraisers travel to different parts of the United Kingdom to appraise antiques brought in by people who live in the local areas.
LT was one of those people, but he didn’t expect to win a fortune when he dropped by on the set of the show with what he thought was an old Navajo blanket.
Well, that blanked ended up being valued at half a million US dollars! As it turned out, that blanket was one of only about 50 in existence, so it was an extremely rare object that would much rather belong in a museum.
LT couldn’t believe his luck, especially considering that he had been living on disability checks for the last few years. His reaction when he learns that his life is about to change is one of the best things you’ll see all week.
