Iowan wins national Antiques Roadshow Open Call contest!
May 5, 2010
Congratulations to Cory Peters of Council Bluffs! Cory submitted a video about his family's documents from Mark Hill Dunnell, including a certificate signed by President Lincoln appointing Dunnell as consul to Vera Cruz, Mexico. Cory asked the folks at Antiques Roadshow to check out this collection, and they've agreed! Cory will receive two VIP tickets to the Antiques Roadshow Appraisal Event in Des Moines on August 7.
Cory submitted his video as part of the national "Open Call" competition hosted by WGBH in Boston, producers of Antiques Roadshow. Three winners are selected, with the final entry selected later this month.
Watch Cory's video here. Congratulations!
