(VIDEO) Man Living on Disability Shocked to Learn Value of Family Heirloom, Changes his Life

Here is a video of L.T., who lost his foot in a car accident. As he explains above, he has to live off of a small disability check, and was overdrawn on his bank account.

After watching an episode of Antique Road Show on PBS, he noticed that a Navajo chief wearing blanket was valued at an unbelievable amount of money. He noticed it looked a lot like a blanket that had been passed down through generations in his family. Hilariously, that blanket was used casually by relatives around the house.

After verification from John Moran Auctioneers that it was authentic, he immediately took the museum-quality treasure to auction. Watch (above) for the dramatic results.
