    Default Pawn Stars & Safety Razor

    Did anyone catch the ABC (?) Gillette OC Razor that a guy came in and wanted to pawn for 2k? I don't know if this was a repeat show or new. The guy was saying it belonged to a royal, but could not prove it. Just thought I'd share, thought it was interesting.

    I'll have to keep my eyes open for that one. I watch the shop all the time.

    I saw that. He said it belonged to the Saudi King or something. No proof. They told him it was not worth anything! HA!
    It WAS a gold Gillette in the box!

    To collectors, wild tales of an item's history are just that. There was a wristwatch some time back that someone had engraved with a purported message from Marilyn Monroe to John Kennedy. Without ironclad provenance, a tale like that would be very hard to swallow.

    I did see the one where they paid > 100$ for a generic solingen razor with white plastic scales in ok condition. That was a bit of a miss.

    Usually they know their stuff, or know someone who does.
    It's interesting what comes through their door. That's the reason I like watching pawn stars.
    Usually, things with unlikely stories turn out bogus, but sometimes they hit gold.
