The guest on the A-Antex Road show was upset as he learned the dark truth behind his WW1 medal that he found on the beach.
The Sunday episode of the BBC show aired on the Royal Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh.
Master Gun Smith Robert Tulney was interested in finding out where a woman got her special badge.
The guest told him: “I was on vacation in Aberdeen with my mom and dad and I was playing on the beach and I dug it.”
Robert asked: “Any idea where this is from?”
He replied: “Germany?”
The expert explained that it was actually British and was used as a propaganda medal.
He explained: “In 1914, German troops were passing through Belgium, which was nervous, entering France, and their idea was to bring German culture to Europe.
“These were newspapers, British newspapers thought, ‘We can show that German culture was not German culture.’
“It was terrible what they were doing in Europe.
“With the money raised with it, because they will sell the Belgian refugees for a few pence to fund them, which was taken out of the Germans.”
Robert told the guest that it would cost no more than £ 40 to £ 50.
He added: “This is a great piece of initial propaganda that you have done to dig on Aberdeen Beach.”
It came after another guest remained silent when he learned the amazing truth behind a small painting on which he spent “his last £ 100”.
In the same episode, one woman gasped, revealing that she could bank up to 000 8,000 if a piece of artwork was taken to auction.
He explained in detail how he got the chance to buy the final painting, the guest explained: “I used to go to graduation shows, and I got there very early but I was too late, all the big paintings were gone.
Maf’s fans are furious after the E4 went ‘off air’ after the channel ran into major problems.
“They were just event hits and I remember maybe there were some non-framed ones so I looked around and found a non-framed one.”
He added: “I was an out-of-work actor at the time – I only had £ 100 in my bank account, but I spent it on it.”
Appreciating the pieces, art historian Charlotte Riverdon set the price at -8 6-800 for John Stone and -1 1-100 for Walton.
On the last painting he announced: “Now, I know you spent your last money on this Allison Watt and hopefully it turned out to be a good investment as this type of size is probably from 2,000. 4,000 – but I would expect it to move forward and exceed that level, it could even double in a day.
The owner gasped, “Wow.”
Then he added: “Well, he did 100 pounds well, didn’t he? That’s great.
“But it just shows you that you should buy for love because you don’t know how it will end.”
