"Pawn Stars" is a reality series on the History Channel that is back with Grandfather Richard Harrison (aka "Old Man"), son Rick Harrison, and grandson Corey Harrison — plus Corey's childhood sidekick, Austin "Chumlee" Russell.

They've seen 3-cent nickels, clocks that kill, a historic Revolutionary War bond printed by Paul Revere, sunken treasure from the Spanish Empire, a glass sword hand-crafted by a self-proclaimed "nutcase" and so much more. In the only family-run pawnshop in Las Vegas,

three generations of men from the Harrison family buy and sell collectible, unusual and historically significant items. Their customers, often as colorful as the merchandise, are carrying on a centuries-old practice: pawning or selling their possessions to make a quick buck.

For thousands of years, people all over the world have found themselves with one problem in common: the need for fast cash. Long before banks, ATMs, and check-cashing services, pawnbrokers have provided monetary loans in exchange for personal items of value, and are still helping everyday people make ends meet today.

The Harrisons' successful pawn shop runs on knowledge, instinct, nerves of steel and family chemistry. The guys are straight-talking, shrewd, and sometimes, even a tad crude. Richard ("Old Man") has a knack for sizing up the precise value of anything. Rick, a born hustler, seems to have a radar for stolen or fake items and is wealth of information when it comes to historical items. Corey, a trained appraiser, is the back-office brains and brawn. And, when the Harrisons' are perplexed by the value or origin of an item, they call on a professional network of specialists for advice.

The shelves of the shop are filled with an eclectic array of items — everything from a 15th century samurai sword to buttons made to mark George Washington's funeral to Picassos and a pirate's peg leg — each with its own story and past.

Everything and everyone has a story and it's the Harrison family's job to decipher fact from fiction, because in this business the customer isn't always right.
