The Auction Hunters
wrapped up their stay in Chicago this week, and as cold as it was, Ton and Allen were just starting to fall in love with the place. Of course, they have been doing pretty well for themselves. This episode proved to be a true Chicago history lesson for the guys, but who said that learning can't be lucrative? All-new episodes air Tuesdays at 10PM/9c.
Firehouse AntiquesSold For: $5,800
Fire grenades, axes, and helmets. Ton and Allen found a treasure trove of antique fire equipment this week. Coming from a city that nearly burned to the ground 140 years ago, these items proved to have more historical (and, in turn, financial) value than either of the guys could ever have hoped for. With most of the equipment proving to be parade equipment and not actual fire gear, they were in better shape than you could hope for and were derived from the most historic volunteer fire company in America, The Rainbow Volunteer Company. One fire-killing grenade launch later, the Hunters made out with their biggest sale in weeks.
The Facebook head-to-head proved to be a big of a no-brainer as we put these two big ticket items up against one another. Clearly our fans were on top of their game and chose the firehouse antiques as the winner. With it out-paying the coffin by a four to one margin, Chicago history came out on top.
What a winner of a week it was for Ton and Allen. They only
on their units, but sold off the coffin, the antiques and some smaller items for a whopping $8,100
, allowing them to grab a highly notable $7,100
