In tribute to Richard Harrisons’ passing, HISTORY is presenting a Pawn Stars marathon highlighting the episodes which “The Old Man” appeared in.
After serving in the U.S. Navy and losing a million dollars in the real estate market, Richard Harrison uprooted his family and moved to Las Vegas in pursuit of a fresh start. Opening the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop in 1988, he had to learn a little about a lot really fast.
From Rolexes to antique cars, Richard was armed with the rare skill of assessing the value of anything accurately. With uncanny precision, Richard was the king of purchasing under-priced merchandise, even from archival pawn shops, which has helped turn his initial $10,000 investment into a multi-million-dollar business. Disciplined, wise and cunning, Richard drove a hard bargain and was anything but easy to please.
Relive the moments that Richard brought to Pawn Stars with this special marathon on HISTORY kicking off 30th June.
