The Pawn Stars run the world famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop in Las Vegas, Nevada. They are made up of the Harrison family- Richard “Old Man” Harrison, Rick Harrison, Corey “Big Hoss” Harrison, as well as Corey’s pal and fan favorite Austin “Chumlee” Russell. They have been incredibly successful financially, not only because of their television show, but also from amazingly valuable items that have been pawned. Rick Harrison and his father are worth $8 million each, Corey is worth $2.5 million, and Chumlee is worth $5 million. What items were bought and sold for vast amounts that gave Chumlee and the Harrisons such deep pockets?
One common thing seen on Pawn Stars is when someone comes into the Gold & Silver with an item they got for almost no money, and find out it is worth a ton of cash. The thing is, that is in the lucky cases. Sometimes, they do not realize how much their relic is worth until it is too late, and are left with pennies, while the Harrisons are laughing their way to the bank. Another exciting thing on the show and with these items specifically is the level of haggling and bargaining that goes into valuing such items. Especially with one of a kind items, there is no market value to compare it to, and some sometimes whopping payments are made.
The haggling by Rick, Chumlee, and Corey is famous for being tougher than a veteran bazaar owner’s. Some of the items in this article are historical. You’ll never guess what JFK owned that ended up in the hands of Chumlee, and the fortune it was worth. The shop also sometimes has made blunders that ended up calling the police. Overall, this list of items will make dollar signs appear in your eyes, and cash registers chime in your ears.
