In PAWN STARS, the new top-rated series on HISTORY™ (averaging 2.1 MM viewers per episode), venture inside the only family-run pawn shop in Las Vegas, where three generations of Harrison men — grandfather Richard, son Rick and grandson Corey — use their sharp-eyed skills to find the gems and bust the fakes, all in hopes of making the biggest profit possible. Rarely tactful and always confrontational, PAWN STARS: SEASON ONE, takes viewers inside the fascinating and colorful world of the pawn business where history meets the modern world.
Long before banks, ATMS and check-cashing services, there were pawn shops. Pawning was the leading form of consumer credit in the United States until the 1950s, and pawn shops are still helping everyday people make ends meet.. At the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop on the outskirts of Las Vegas, three generations of Harrisons jointly run the family business, and there’s clashing and camaraderie every step of the way. Using their sharp eyes and finely-honed skills to assess the value of items from the commonplace to the truly historic — including a 16th-century samurai sword, a Super Bowl ring, a Picasso painting and a 17th-century stay of execution — it’s up to them to determine what’s real and what’s fake, because everything and everyone has a story and in this business the customer isn’t always right.
