The popular series, American Pickers will be returning to a few states in the Midwest this summer and a return to Illinois is on the schedule. This time, the purpose will not be to find things you'd see in antique stores, it will be to find bigger treasure than that.

Mike and Frank, the hosts of the show, are looking for some very specific, ahead of this Midwestern treasure hunt.

In a recent Facebook post, that has already been shared hundreds of times, the show detailed what kinds of treasures they're on the hunt for.

How are ya midwest? We are still in your states looking for those hidden treasures. This JULY, We will be heading to ILLINOIS, INDIANA and MICHIGAN looking for items that are RARE, HISTORICAL, SIGNIFICANT, and COOL.

Right now I'm thinking about all of the barns, large sheds, and outbuildings I saw on a recent drive US 20 from Huntley back to Rockford. I wonder how many of them have an item that American Pickers would love to find.
