What's It Worth? is an early American television series that aired on the CBS Television network from 21 May 1948 and into 1949. The series was later revived in 1952, before finally finishing its run on 11 October 1953.
The show was hosted by self-taught appraiser Sigmund Rothschild (1917-1991), who appraised antiques for celebrities. Rothschild also hosted a similar program called Trash or Treasure? (1952–53) on the DuMont Television Network.
As the series title suggests, the audience submitted items of art, and Rothschild would tell them how much it was worth.
