"Pawn Star$" is back again for a new season. If you didn't watch it in the first season, you have really missed out on a great show. The second season premieres on History on November 30, 2009, which is the perfect time for both fans and newcomers to the show to tune in.
Long before banks, ATMs and check-cashing services, there were pawn shops. Pawning was the leading form of consumer credit in the United States until the 1950s, and pawn shops are still helping everyday people make ends meet. Pawn Star$ takes you inside the colorful world of the pawn business with three generations of the Harrison family.
The first customer in this episode brings them a propeller that he claims was given to his grandmother by Charles Lindbergh. He has no documentation so they will need to do further investigation to determine its authenticity. The expert explains this propeller was not on the Spirit of St. Louis. He explains that without documentation it could not be tied to Lindbergh. The shop offer to buy it as an antique, but the man decides to research it instead and leaves with it.
Next, a man brings in an antique musketoon gun but there are some concerns as to whether the parts are still the original ones. An authority comes in to check on the gun and determines it is indeed authentic, as well as quite rare and valuable. The shop buys it after bargaining with its owner.
Next, a man comes in with a key chain from what he says belonged to Willie Nelson's 1990 Mercedes Benz. The man's family bought the car used and had Willie Nelson's name on the title to prove it. However, as the Old Man points out - there is more than one Willie Nelson and there is no way to verify if it is the correct one. The man leaves deciding he will find a way to get in touch with Willie.
Finally, Rick has been under a lot of stress and the doctor has told him to lower his stress. He tries squeezing stress balls but they don't work (and he has to put up with a lot of jokes for it). He decides to take the musketoon they just bought out to shoot it, which he hopes will lower his stress and also will allow him to find out if the gun actually works. It does, and it does lower his stress.
