A rare 18th-century Lancaster County fraktur, which a man found in a suitcase in a dump more than 30 years ago, was appraised at $25,000 to $35,000 on the episode of the “Antiques Roadshow” historical-artifact program that aired Monday night on PBS.

The Pennsylvania German folk art document, attributed to the unknown maker known as the Sussel-Washington artist, was appraised during the episode shot in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
