Pawn Stars is a great piece of reality television. Viewers can enjoy the colorful personalities of the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop owners and employees while also getting to see some cool antiques and learn more about them. With 20 seasons under its belt, it’s no wonder that Pawn Stars viewers saw a lot of fascinating items being featured on the show. But which ones were the most expensive?
Jimi Hendrix Guitar
Asking Price: $750K
A guitar played by rock legend Jimi Hendrix appeared on the show in Season 9. Experts estimated the guitar to be worth up to $1 million, with the seller asking for $750K. Rick was only willing to go up to $500K, and the deal didn’t go through.
Asking Price: $ 1 million
In Season 3, the Pawn Stars crew was offered a chance to purchase mechanical dinosaurs. And while the “Robosaurus” was quite cool with its fire breathing and other features, Cory didn’t even make an offer after hearing an asking price of $1 million.
Original Beatles Contract
Asking Price: $1 million
Season 9 saw another important piece of music memorabilia making an appearance in Pawn Stars. The seller brought in the first contract that the members of The Beatles signed with their manager. Rick passed on the chance to buy it since the asking price of $1 million was well above the $500K estimate.
Car Tupac Was Shot In
Asking Price: $1.5 million
Tupac Shakur, considered one of the greatest rappers of all time, was fatally shot in 1996 as a result of a drive-by. BMW 750iL sedan, the car that Shakur was shot in, made it to the show in Season 15 and was estimated at $200K by one expert and up to $1 million by another. The car wasn’t purchased as the seller’s asking price was too much for owner Rick.
George Washington’s 3-Piece Suit
Asking Price: $3 million – $2.5 million
The most expensive item to ever appear on the show is a suit owned and worn by the first president of the United States, George Washington. It was offered to Rick by an Americana collector, who wanted $3 million for it. Rick actually considered buying it, but his offer of $2 million wasn’t enough to get the deal done.
