Episode description: A North Carolina woman wants to know whether her two Black Star Line stock certificates were really signed by company founder Marcus Garvey. A San Francisco toy collector shows a small mouse figurine that may turn the legend of Mickey on its ears. It has a red label on its chest that reads "Micky" and a patent label on the bottom of one foot that says "Pat. Aug. 17, 1926"—two years before Walt Disney created Mickey Mouse. And a tiny printing block from a pro-Nazi newspaper, discovered by a Texas A&M archaeologist, may hold the key to the mystery of a German POW camp rumored to be based in Hearne, TX during World War II.
