I like this show but sometimes I have a hard time believing that they really operate that way. Tonight a guy came in with a spanish gold coin from I believe the 1700's. He wanted $2000 for it. Of course Rick had to call an expert friend of his in to authenticate it. Now why would he not call his buddy and tell him what he thought he had and ask him that if it is indeed authentic how much is it worth, and then when he looked at it and said yes it was authentic say he would not want to guess on a price. As it was the guy came in said it was the best example he had ever seen and said it was worth aqpprox. $18,000. Rick haggled with the guy and got it for $11,000. Either this is the most honest pawn broker in the world or there is something wrong with this picture. He could have easily gotten that coin for $2000!!!!
