Des Moines, Ia - Hour Three

Host Mark L. Walberg, in full beekeeper's regalia, gets a lesson in honey farming near Des Moines, Iowa, while - at a safer distance - appraiser Stuart Whitehurst discusses examples of antiques with bee motifs. Highlights include a circa 1856 Des Moines city plan, printed just before it officially became Iowa's new capital; a circa 1838 E.C. Brewster beehive clock; and a circa 1925 round European-cut diamond and platinum ring, valued at $60,000 to $80,000.
