    • Wannabang

      Of course it's old – it was made in the mid-1800s. Did you pay no attention to the video at all?!

    • Jake

  • JPlunk

    Oops, I thought Chive was posting something funny… -__-

    • TXlead

      It's no supposed to be funny, it's supposed to be heartwarming. Clearly you're not from around here. Chivers have heart.

  • NLViking

    That's nice to see.

  • Lane

      sounds like an episode of pawn stars…

    • JBinNC

      Hey, I've got to make a profit.

    • mikey

      you know after i get it professionally cleaned and framed then its gonna be displayed and take up space in the shop. it will probably hang there for at least a year. so after all that i might make 20 bucks. best i can do is 10 dollars. that 350000 dollars is at auction. im not an auction. 10 bucks

  • Dumbphone

    Am I the only one who assumed the worst when he started to clutch his chest?

    • Chris


    • Becky

      The video was cut short. I watched the full video when they told him they were pulling his leg and that blanket is prolly worth 25 cents. It shouldn't have been on display so they were messing with the poor old man. Pretty messed up if you ask me.

  • swilly

    the cum stains alone must be worth a fortune

    • Dwilly


    • lannen302

      you should have been a cum stain

  • david

    • Spelling Police

  • chicago

    'hanging on the back of a chair" incredible. so emotional of remembering his grandmother ..it's great when really good things happen to regular people. nice clip, thx chive.

    • VCB

      Made me a little *sniff* misty. I love videos like this.

  • _LG

    I could watch this show for hours, not just because of the insane historical finds… but because of the reactions of both the appraiser and the owner. Reality TV can't hold a candle to this show, imo.

    This guy is incredibly lucky that he kept that thing over a chair! In my house, my cats would have completely pwned that thing.

    • http://www.thechive.com AdamBaldick

      This show is on PBS almost every day. It's one of my favorite shows to watch. I thank the TV gods that I get to watch this great show rather than honey-boo tard or whatever that show is.

    • http://twitter.com/CerealFede @CerealFede

      i have no idea what u wrote, just marry me

    • r00s7a

      I'm a big fan as well. Reality shows would have stretched this one appraisal out into a 30 minute show, with crappy reenactments, repeating what they just showed before commercial, and bad acting.

    • Laurie

      Yes, if it had been in my house, it would have had just as much cat hair as hand-woven wool…

  • Job

    Basically, its worth more than the fiat currency in circulation today. Poor fella.

    • http://www.markalmighty.com Mark Almighty

      Job, I can only guess that the people who down-voted your comment have nary a clue what "fiat currency" is or what its domination of an economy does to the wealth of the average person. Hopefully, it's not because they are fans of government-sanctioned counterfeiting.


      • Josh

        Mark, I know what fiat currency is. I still downvoted. Now go fuck yourself.

        • http://www.markalmighty.com Mark Almighty

          Josh, your artful and reasoned explanation has convinced me that allowing a privately-owned banking cartel – i.e., The Federal Reserve System – to print all the money it wants to from nothing and loan it out at interest in an environment with restrictive legal tender laws is a great idea. What could possibly go wrong? I’m sure our $16 trillion national debt doesn't have anything to do with it, so I will sleep wonderfully tonight.

          As penance for being so misguided, I will now go fuck myself. Stay classy.

          • Josh

            I downvoted that comment too, Mark. Go fuck yourself again.

  • beasty

    Up to half a mill is damn good, but considering Bieber is worth millions …….

    I love this show and the reactions are priceless. Good for him.

  • Whale

    He is now blowing a ton of coke of hookers tits.

  • Bcm

    Showed this to one of my archaeology classes a few years back. Wonderful reaction. I'll take AR over pawn stars any day

  • remember this?

    It's just a blanket!

  • Tillman61

    Cool ol' dude – handled it a lot better than I would have. He didn't say "You're shittin' me!" or "Fuckin' A!"

    • VCB

      I thought I heard him slip a "shit" in there, but I could have misheard him.

  • Adee_Do

    Kit Carson was a piece of Sh*t, would not be surprised if he got his hands on that blanket by raping, strangling and burning the Navajo woman that weaved that blanket too. Good for this old man to score on this hand me down though.

    • iSheep

      Holy shit, you're ignorant. Did you even bother to research Kit Carson before you posted?

      Fucking hell, what are they teaching people nowadays?

  • Rez dog

    I live on the Navajo reservation. My grandma has a blanket that looks exactly like that on her bed. I wonder….
