Brian Witherell, a regular appraiser on “Antiques Roadshow,” has uncovered many Sacramento finds during his career. A recent auction was devoted to Gold Rush-era antiques.

They flank a gigantic mechanical music box with 27-inch discs. In the foreground is an antique gold scale. At right is a classic cigar store Indian.
