We open with a sparkling three-diamond platinum ring. There’s a mechanical bank dating back to 1883, and an eccentric Afghanistan folk art rug. Plus, Civil War letters with “serious value,” prints from the “Darktown” series by Currier &Ives, and a lovely watercolor by a famous Chinese painter. Appraiser Highlight: finding “diamonds in the rough” at yard sales.
