I need to know what Lileks scores 

My dad was the guy that locked up the plant where he worked for thirty years and handed the key to the bank. He then went to selling antiques full-time and hasn't looked back for the last eighteen years. I'm sending him this quiz on pricing antiques.

I wonder what the difference is in prices between the U.S. and the U.K. for collectibles? In antique dealing, individual knowledge is important, but so too is location. Antiques in MN sell for much more than in ME or MA, I've found.

So far, no Hummels seen on the quiz.
