'Pawn Stars': A Piece Of Mob History?

On " Pawn Stars " (Mon., 10 p.m. EST on History) a would-be seller discovered that in the world of antiques and collectibles all good yarns have to be backed up with solid documentation. He approached the Harrisons with an elaborate signet ring that he said had once belonged to mobster Lucky Luciano. Rick Harrison wasn't going to just take the guy's word for it, so he brought in an expert to authenticate it. When asked for the background of the ring, the seller told them that it had been given to his mother by "a person of authority who was connected to the Mob families." Unfortunately, he didn't have any photos or written evidence to back up either his claim about the ring, or his mom's alleged involvement with organized crime. The expert's verdict? "I just don't think we can conclude this is Lucky Luciano's ring." But he did agree that, "it's a great story." "Pawn Stars" airs Mondays at 10 p.m. EST on History.

'Pawn Stars': Civil War Pistol Leaves, But Comes Back

It's one of the places where classing haggling still rules the roost, but it can be a tricky game to play. On the latest "Pawn Stars" (Mon., 10 p.m. EST on History), a rare Civil War revolver walked in the door, immediately catching the eye of store co-owner Rick Harrison. But the man started at $20,000 before stalling out at $12K, while Rick said he couldn't go any higher than ten grand. "All right, $10,000," Rick said. "That's an open offer." And with that, the man took his gun and left. But it wasn't the last Rick would see of the gun, as he suspected. He knew his offer was a good one. It sometimes just takes a little convincing and time to sink in when someone is anticipating more. When the guy came in and said that something had told him to just take Rick's offer, Rick saw right through him. "So you brought it to the gun show and no one offered you more than ten grand," he said. "That's what really happened," the guy laughed. But a man of his word, Rick honore the open offer and the guy walked out with ten grand. Who knows what'll come in next on "Pawn Stars," every Monday at 10 p.m. EST on History.

'Pawn Stars': Rick's Bad News About A Purchase

The guys of " Pawn Stars " (Mon., 10 p.m. EST on History) are good, but they're not perfect. Though in hindsight, the Old Man always seems to become that way. He was on hand again this time to tell his son and co-owner RIck Harrison that he knew better. Of course he did. Rick got excited about a purported 19th century strongbox, and so he bought it before he brought in his expert to appraise it. Normally, Rick has a good eye for what's fake and what's real, but the attention to detail and quality of the piece must have blinded him. It was a fake. "I thought it was fake to start with," the Old Man told him. When Rick challenged him, asking him why then he'd let him spend the store's money on it, the Old Man replied, "I didn't want to bust your bubble." He followed it up with, "Now I can holler at you." See what treasures and trash the guys discover on "Pawn Stars" every Monday night at 10 p.m. EST on History.

The Shop Scores Secretariat's Horseshoe on 'Pawn Stars' (VIDEO)

On Monday's 'Pawn Stars' (Mondays, 10PM on History), a customer brought the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop what he said was a horseshoe worn by Secretariat. If it were a genuine item, it would be a real catch for the guys at the shop, but it needed to be authenticated. So Corey Harrison and the Old Man brought in their expert to check it out. The customer had a letter signed by Penny Chenery, Secretariat's owner, and the expert said he could establish that the letter had been sent from Chenery's daughter's house in New York. The shoe also had marks consistent with the brand of horseshoe that Secretariat had worn. The big test, according to the expert, was whether it was a race shoe or a farm shoe: race shoes are aluminum and farm shoes are steel. http://www.aoltv.com/2011/09/06/the-shop-scores-secretariats-horseshoe-on-pawn-stars-video/

Porsche Engine Owner Disputes Expert Mechanic's Assessment on 'Pawn Stars' (VIDEO)

Rick Harrison trusts his experts more than he trusts his potential sellers. That's the way he has to run his business on 'Pawn Stars' (Mondays, 10PM on History). That reality came as a shock to the owner of a Porsche 911 Carrera engine., when Danny Koker, Harrison's expert mechanic, said the engine might be damaged. Koker saw some surface rust, and deduced from the fact that none of the compartments were closed that there was also likely damage inside the engine. "What's going on on the surface is going to be going on, to an extent, inside," said Kokel. "And that's the unknown." The engine's owner didn't like that and flat out called Kokel's assessment wrong, saying it was a good engine. http://www.aoltv.com/2011/08/16/porsche-engine-owner-disputes-expert-mechanic-pawn-stars-video/

Rick Tests Out a Revolving Cannon From the 1870s on 'Pawn Stars' (VIDEO)

When Rick Harrison got his first look at the Hotchkiss .37 millimeter revolving cannon on 'Pawn Stars' (Mondays, 10PM on History), he said it looked "like hellfire and damnation." Anyone facing down the weapon when it was used in the 1870s might have felt the same way. Harrison was looking at the cannon as a potential investment, and got to try it out with live ammunition. Harrison turned the crank and fired the weapon at a bunch of water-filler barrels, hitting the targets with a force that impressed him. But it was the last barrel, rigged with explosives, that was the clincher. When Harrison hit it, the barrel exploded into a high cloud. Rick was giggling like a school kid the whole time. http://www.aoltv.com/2011/08/09/rick-tests-out-a-revolving-cannon-from-the-1870s-on-pawn-stars-video/

Massive 'Stark Trek' Collection for Sale on 'Pawn Stars' (VIDEO)

Hardcore 'Star Trek' fans had to be salivating at the collection that walked into the shop on 'Pawn Stars' (Mon., 10PM ET on History). The owner had a massive collection of figures of varying sizes, and many of them were signed by the stars of the various shows and movies. Corey brought in an expert to appraise it after hearing the $14,000 opening offer from the seller. After the appraisal came in at $8-9,000, the negotiations began. The owner tried playing on Corey's sympathy by telling him he has a wedding to pay for, but Corey wasn't playing that game. "It's not my issue, man," he said. "You can get married for 99 cents in the Prius right down the street." http://www.aoltv.com/2011/08/02/massive-stark-trek-collection-for-sale-pawn-stars-video/

Why Aren't You Watching 'Pawn Stars?' - Starpulse

When "Antiques Road Show" premiered in America thirteen years ago, it astoundingly became something of a phenomenon. The idea of attaching a monetary figure to all that old junk people collected made for some interesting, if not particularly compelling, television. The problem was, of course, no one ever got to sell their antiques as the show only appraised, and never purchased items or put them up for auction. Also, there were only so many antique vases a fellah could see before wondering what else was on. Enter "Pawn Stars". Following the proprietors of the family owned "Gold & Silver" pawn shop in downtown Las Vegas. "Pawn Stars" takes the appraisal element of "Antiques Road show" and mixes it with a rock n roll vibe, some curse words, a cast of characters only Las Vegas could provide, and most importantly, shows us the money.
