American Pickers 15

This isn't your grandmother's antiquing. Pickers like Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz are on a mission to recycle America, even if it means diving into countless piles of grimy junk or getting chased off a gun-wielding homeowner's land.

Hitting back roads from coast to coast, the two men earn a living by restoring forgotten relics to their former glory, transforming one person's trash into another's treasure.

In the Season 15 premiere: in Massachusetts, the guys try to broker a deal on an original Bowie knife and discover a Hollywood collection containing rare photos of Marilyn Monroe.
