Antiques Roadshow appraiser Christopher Mitchell says this Civil War era matched gun set is worth as much as $30,000. But if the holder can find out about the original owner the guns could be worth much more. Hunting for the man behind these pistols takes host Wes Cowan to a Civil War border state torn between loyalties to the blue and the gray.
