If you do not watch television, or have not seen Pawn Stars on the History Channel you may want to watch the most recent episode…
Pawn Stars is a reality show about one of the oldest pawn shops in Las Vegas, NV. Recently, someone brought in a stockpile of silver to sell to the shop. The “Old Man”, owner of the Gold and Silver Pawn Shop, jumps right out of his seat as soon as he hears “a bunch of silver” to see what’s being brought in. You would have to know a little about the “The Old Man” to understand the point, he just doesn’t get excited by much anymore.
The point of this post and why we’re recommending watching the episode is to show that one of the oldest professions in time realizes how liquid precious metals are. Rick Harrison, “The Old Mans” son explains why he loves to buy silver and how he wishes he could buy silver like this every day. He also goes in to why it’s pertinent to know what your buying, just in case the metal is not pure silver.
Over three thousand ounces of silver was brought in…one bar weighed over 70lb’s. Watch the episode to see if the metal was real and how much the kid got for the pure .999 silver he had.
