    1. Dude that’s what they do when people are pawning off their fender guitar a hundred bucks…. not a rare gold coin from 1805 that’s worth almost 30k Wtf

    1. Chuck Keough Not smart then the goverment will tax you, get the money in cash and bury it in a metal box.

    2. Chuck Keough 20% of $25,000 is $5000 I’m pretty sure that’s how much they would tax him on selling something he owns.

    3. All of this is staged so putting that aside, if someones got the money to throw around on coins of this value, good chance they have methods in place to reduce or avoid most taxes middle-class and down pay

    1. Yeah, always nice when they are not desperate enough to have to accept Rick’s low ball offers.

  1. I like how Rick is pretending to look at something down in the display case as the guy walks away. he know he could’ve sold that coin for at least 50

    1. @umeng2002 Rick actually does have a point with a lot of that, before 2008 that would have been worth a lot more.

    2. @KingRiverVlogs ✓ But with them being older now than they were back then, they should be worth more now.

  2. Every time Rick fails to make a deal, he pretends to be looking at his stuff lol

    1. He isn’t pretending. He’s thinking “Its ok, let it go, I have other shiny objects” Also he looked up hoping the guy would turn back

    1. @Shang Tsung it isn’t that staged… I know someone who has been on 3 times. The producers know the gig, Rick knows the basics of what may be coming, bit dollar amounts and specifics are not discussed until the cameras are rolling.

    2. Shadowgt I wish I was in the store and overheard what was going on! I would run out after the guy. And a great coin would be mine.

  3. That’s what people fail to realize, any pawn shop is open to make money, not lose it!! I honestly believe that Rick gives his best offers, especially when something is worth tens of thousands of dollars

  4. Imagine Rick doing research for every other episode without calling his experts living under their store basement

  5. Love the way Rick says to the seller you would walk away for $2.500 the does the same over a thousand

  6. One thing I didn’t like about this was that Rick made the excuse that the coin sold for a lot because of some “boom”. The older the coin is, the more valuable it should be over time, whether or not there’s some baseless “boom”. Aside from that, I like Rick’s negotiating with the customers.
