There was a recent story about a little boy who discovered how much the $2.00 painting he found at an auction in New Jersey was really worth.

Way more than the $2.00 he paid for it!

It's believed that the piece of art was created at the beginning of the 19th century and is currently worth around $1500.

He was featured on the hit show "Antiques Roadshow" and was obviously super excited about his find.

It's always fun to hear when an antique purchased for very little money at a yard sale or antique store turns out to be worth a lot more!
