In the show, Paul is gobsmacked by the auction's progression and receives a round of applause at the high price of the sale. At the time, he said:"I have no words, I'm over the moon. I genuinely am flabbergasted. You go treasure hunting - but does it get any better than that? I don't think it does!"  headtopics.com

The item, one of Auguste Bertsch’s extremely rare Chambre Automatique cameras, which is a camera combined with a microscope, was purchased via an online bid to a private collector in Switzerland. The camera was an extremely rare find 

Antiques Road Trip has previously come under fire following accusations that contestants are able to buy items for much lower than they would usually sell for. Speaking to the Antiques Trade Gazette back in 2011, executive producer Wendy Rattray denied that deals were organised by the production, saying"I acknowledge that our experts push very hard to get the best deal possible, which sometimes results in them getting deals which have been perceived by some as being unrealistic.
