After a couple of weeks of reruns, Pawn stars comes back with two new episodes.
In the first episode, the first person brought in a Klingon Bat'leh sword:
http://www.startrek.com/database_article/batlethThe guy wanted $300 and Corey offered $100 and then $110 and that was the sale price.
The next lady brought n an over and under flintlock pistol. It had some fancy printing on the metal. It had some problems with it, so, time for an expert.
The pistol was a 4 barrel pistol. It was a Clark named pistol. The expert says the gun as is was worth about $700 to $1000 and not worth restoring. Rick offered $500. The lady went to $600 and that was the selling price.
The next story line was when someone broke a 200 year old vase that was broke in the warehouse. It turns out that Chumlee broke the vase when he was playing with the Star war sword.
The next guy brought in a Chicago Police call box that were placed on the street so cops can call their station houses to get their calls. The Milwaukee Police Dept. had the same thing, I remember seeing when I was a kid. The guy wanted $1000 and Corey offered $200. The guy went down to to $250 and Corey went to $225 and that was the sale price,
The show has a new sponsor, Miller 64. Hmmm. Kind of a wimpy beer to sponsor the show.
The next guy brought in a book of Eisenhower stamps that were misprinted and miscut. They were 8 cent stamps. Time for an expert. For more information on Dwight D. Eisenhower:
Expert Jay came in and said that there 4 or 5 errors in the book of stamps. He said the book of stamps were worth between $500 to $700. The guy wanted $500 and Rick offered $400. The guy went down to $425 and that was the selling price.
To see Chumlee Ninja:
In the second episode,the first guy brought in an exploding dye pack of $10 bills that banks used when the banks were being robbed. The guy wanted $500 and Rick wanted someone to make sure it was legal to own. Mark from the Clark County Museum came in and said they were legal to own because they were made by a private company. The guy wanted $473 for the dye pack and Rick offered $100 and then $150 and then $175 and that was the sale price.
To see a dye pack in action:
The next guy brought in a burnt copy of the 1932 Championship game Between the Chicago Bears and the Portsmouth Spartans, who later became the Detroit Lions. Corey offered $2000 and the guy came back with $5000. Corey came back with $2500. The selling price was $2750. Corey took the program to Jeremy and he said the Championship was played indoors at the old Chicago Stadium. He said the program was worth about $10,000 in an auction.
Olivia of the night shift showed up and Chumlee apparently has been working a lot of double shifts. They had a customer who had a bike to sell and they let the guy inside. (very stupid). It was a Schwinn 1952 tandem (2 seater) bike. Both Olivia and Chumlee were working. I am just waiting for the guy to pull out a pistol and rob the place. The seller and Olivia rode the bike together in the sore. The guy wanted $300. Chumlee offered $40 (what a bunch of crap offer) And then went up to $60 and there was no deal. I am not sure why they had this in the show, it really doesn't fit the flow of the show.
The next guy brought in a lithograph art by Evel Knievel, the motorcycle stunt jumper. On the back of art piece was a diagram of a potential jump over a moving train. The guy wanted $500 and Rick offered $100 and then $200 and then $250 and that was the sales price.
That wraps 2 new episodes of Pawn Stars. There will be two new episodes next Monday, so thanks for stopping by and see you next week
