If you’ve ever seen the Pawn Stars on television, you know that it’s one of the most famous pawn shops in the world, situation comfortably in Las Vegas. These guys get countless dollars worth of merchandise traveling in and out of their doors each and every day as customers come forward to buy and sell some of the craziest items that you might have never even thought of. You’d be surprised at some of the oddities that come through their doors and sometimes, the guys decide that it’s worth spending some big money on these oddities. Whether it’ll all be worth it or not, only time will be able to tell.

Just imagine finding out that you threw some serious change right down the drain.
