AN Antiques Roadshow-style event is to be held next week where residents can get their old valuables examined.

Auctioneers Lockdales will be holding specialist valuation days for collectables such as coins, stamps, banknotes, pocket watches, silver, gold, and medals.

Militaria including swords, bayonets and de-activated weapons, as well as cigarette-cards, postcards, pre-1960 sports programmes and tickets can also be valued.

Members of the public will have the option to have their goods sold in a future public auction.

Valuations will be provided free of charge.

A session will be held on Wednesday, September 26 at Ferneham Hall, in Osborn Road, Fareham, between 11am and 4pm.

And there will be one the next day, Thursday September 27 at The Royal Maritime Club, Queen Street, Portsmouth, between 10am and 2pm.

Lockdales has been holding six auctions per year since 1997.

They sometimes find very rare and interesting items from the public at these events.

One item in particular, a unique gold coin from the Dark Ages, was brought along to a previous event.

The owner was not aware of the value of it and it was later auctioned for more than £19,000.
