Have you ever been into a dusty old pawn shop and wondered about the stuff littering the shelves? There are deals a plenty to be had that’s for sure, but some of that “stuff” is probably worth a lot more than you’d expect!
Pawn Stars appears on History Channel and if you’ve never seen this show before, prepare to be delighted as three generations of the Harrison family take you on a tour. Grandfather Richard, his son and grandson, Rick and Corey jointly own the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop located on the outskirts of Las Vegas. This 24hr establishment has finds that are both commonplace and truly iconic and unique.
While jewelry is is the most common item at the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop, there are many other items available that have a significant history behind them. The show generally focuses on these unique finds with Richard Harrison (known as the “Old Man”) providing much of the backstory. Where the three Harrison’s lack knowledge, they pull in local experts to better advise on authenticity and overall value.
While this by itself might be quite interesting, the true charm in Pawn Stars is the interaction between the characters themselves. Some reviewers have classified the show as a version of Antique Roadshows mashed with American Chopper’s!
