It's one of the oldest forms of banking, and until the 1950s, it was the leading form of consumer credit in the U.S. Now, the fascinating world and history of the pawning business is revealed in the new 30-minute/14-episode personality-driven series, PAWN STAR$, premiering Sunday, July 19 at 10pm ET on HISTORY. PAWN STAR$ takes viewers inside the doors of the only family-run pawnshop in Las Vegas, where three generations of men from the Harrison family grandfather, father and son amusingly clash while running the business together. This family has lived and breathed the pawn business, using their sharp-eyed skills to carefully assess the value of items their colorful customers bring in, objects ranging from the obscure to the truly historic.
