Not sure if anyone else saw this but the American Pickers were in Mingo County as part of the Hatfield-McCoy publicity that the history channel is currently doing. It was pretty neat to see.

Although it was a very short segment, it was very interesting. My thanks to TIVO for saving it for me.

That is twice they have filmed in WV.

I just saw that one today. My eyes were glued to every second of their visit to Mingo Co. I've been knee deep in Hatfield-McCoy research since watch the 3 part episode of Hatfield & McCoys, so some of the names in the ledger were familiar. I particularly loved this episode of American Pickers more than any other I've ever seen. They should've made the whole episode a visit to Mingo, or Mingo & Logan Counties. I'm sure they would've found enough people to buy from in that area. Loved seeig the ledgers & what people were buying back then. Awesome episode.

Yeah, it would have been nice if they would have spent a little more time there and have looked for some pieces that had a little more significance historically. I think most of these things are planned ahead of time though and that was likely the limitation.
