Not much celluloid footage of President Franklin D. Roosevelt exists because of the fact that his use of a wheelchair was hidden from the public during his lifetime.
So when a woman approached them with what she said was previously unseeen celluloid footage of the 32nd President, the "Pawn Stars" (Mon., 10 p.m. EST on History) were both wary and excited.
Could this reel of film be a goldmine? Handing over the tin the owner confessed that she didn't know exactly what was on the reel as she'd never watched it.
Luckily The Old Man and Corey had an 8 mm projector, so they called in an expert to authenticate the footage.
His verdict? "This is not original footage." While captivating, what it looked like was a mixture of campaign footage and a biopic. To the obvious disappointment of the seller, it was "pretty much all stock commercial footage" and therefore not valuable.
"Pawn Stars" airs Mondays at 10 p.m. EST on History.
