    1. @chriss4365 cheers mate, at least we dont pay tax on gambling wins here in New Zealand

    2. @PC gone mad 3142536 so can you tell us if Bernie Sanders is nuts about free healthcare? What is your tax rate on your paychecks?

  1. Rick is extra nice to him because he’s a fellow baldie. Baldies stick together like the Marines

    1. @Iv V but not everyone with a bald head is going bald so it’s hard to use a razor when all your hair is still there

  2. He won one of the most rarest coins ever minted in American history in a poker game.

    That’s that most American thing I’ve ever heard of.

    1. Claugustus That’s probably just a little kid who didnt understand what the person meant in their comment

    1. @Charly Sal 20k each that why the guy want 20k for it… depend on how many people… someone must got good card so willing to bet it in…

    1. There are finds that would just come back on the reputation of the place if they didn’t offer at least fair money.

      Like if an army widow brings in a 62 Custom Color Stratocaster, you tell her it’s not a $500 guitar and you’re both going to make a lot of money if that’s ok with her.

    2. He did it for a faberge broach too. The lady had found it in her junk drawer, wanted a few k, he offered her something like 50k

    1. the camera was rolling and he didn’t want to ditch a career for that small amount of money,and yes he was told by his dad,respect is all you have in this world,no one hangs with bums

  3. This is why Rick is an awesome guy to be around, he never scams his costumers and hes well known in the “Auctioneers” circle.
    God bless you sir, stay safe.

  4. Bruh, an episode of Rick offering more money should be considered a HOLY GRAIL of american television and deserves an Emmy award

    1. @Susie Cox  it has higher sharper detailing on the coin, and with there being higher sharper detailing, it was harder to knock the coin out of the mint so many of them didn’t come out right and canceled production

  5. Not many people will be honest enough to tell you what you brought in is worth a lot more than what you asked for . Way to go Rick ! ! ! !

    1. @The 570 Experience no. It’s definitely not. There are some fake aspects of it, and staged moments, but these are real people that really own these items.

    2. @assmane999 they are not….I know people who were on the show..they were given items and told what to say

    3. @The 570 Experience not true. I have heard a few people from the show say it was mostly legit and that the items were indeed their own.

  6. That’s the first time I’ve seen Rick offer something on the higher side of the scale. Normally if they say between 50 and 100 he’d be low-balling at 45

    1. Weird items will sit around in the shop a while, and every day an item sits it costs the pawn shop money. An item like this Peace Dollar, however, will sell instantly in an online auction.

    2. Ya, I was shocked he started at $65k and even more shocked he went to $80k so easily. Guess he figured it’s gonna be a really easy sell, and flipping it for another $10k would happen in days.

    3. Shoulda started at 60k then 2 more to 75k. Woulda saved another 5k. Thats a must buy item and you gotta start high for an item like that.

  7. Rick’s moments of honesty are laudable. The guy could’ve probably gotten $85,000. That’s a very, very special coin.

  8. Rick: “You were willing to take $20Grand for it.”
    Customer: “You weren’t willing to offer me $20Grand for it.”
    Best comeback ever and shut Rick DOWN!

  9. Being a coin collector I know for certain that 1922 HR Peace Dollars are worth $135 k on average and would undoubtedly go much higher at the right auction. Auction Record is $458,250 in 2014

    1. I’ve in my possesion 1922 HR Peace Dollar coin and 1880 Morgan One Dollar coin .Wonder how could i sell them

  10. If he went to any other pawn store and they knew how much this coin was really worth and he said 20k they definitely wouldn’t say it’s worth more they will just agree on the offer and I actually respect Rick for doing that

    1. Anyone who takes something that is genuinely rare to a PAWN SHOP and expects top dollar is nuts. Take it to a high end auction.

  11. As a fellow coin collector I know that Rick also knows that this coin will always go up in value. He knows the hobby very well and even at this price it is
    a smart buy.

    1. This fact that you state here is one of the reasons Rick has the net worth that he has…because he is worth it due to his talent.

  12. One of the very few segments where, just from the camera closeups alone, you could see what they were talking about in terms of the depth and sharpness of the strike. Exquisite detail. What an beautiful coin.

  13. I love this episode not only as a coin collector, but a poker player too. The guy selling the coin isn’t just a guy- That’s is poker hall-of-famer Eric Seidel. He has many a World Series bracelet and more than $30M in lifetime poker winnings. He’s a legend.
