for September 2007.

Press Release Body: Cleveland, Ohio - October 06, 2007 -
(, the Web\'s largest free price guide for antiques and
collectibles, today released its list of the top 20 searches for September. The
Kovels\' top 20 list is based on the results of hundreds of thousands of searches
that took place on its website during the month of September 2007.

People use price guides for a number of reasons, usually to determine the value of
an item that they own. If an item isn\'t listed on the top 20 list, it doesn\'t mean
it is unpopular or that there isn\'t a demand for it. It only means that in September
there was less interest in finding prices for that item.

1. Jewelry (No movement); 2. Stoves (Up from #4); 3. World War II (Up from #6); 4.
Furniture (Up from #5); 5. Coca-Cola (Down from #3); 6. Occupied Japan (Up from #7);
7. Silverplate (Up from #8); 8. Lighters (Up from #10); 9. Cookie Jars (No

across the U.S. in recent weeks.
