Les Spending Spree
Lawyer Up Son

Burmese or Busted? was the 9th episode of Season 6 of Hardcore Pawn. It originally aired on September 4, 2012.


A woman wanted to sell her deceased grandmother's gems to pay for her funeral. Ashley thought that they were all nothing but glass costume jewellery, but Les still wanted the shop's gemologist to test them out. Ashley thought that having them tested would be a waste of time, but Les wanted them tested, lest risking thousands of dollars from walking out the door. After the gems were tested, Ashley was right that all of them were glass, except for one, which is a genuine Burmese Ruby worth tens of thousands of dollars. Then later, a couple came in with what they thought was gold dust; as with the gems, Ashley was skeptical that it was real, but Les wanted to give it the acid test to make sure. Also: a woman loses her grandmother's ring after being one month late for her pawn payment, leading her to lose the ring; irate, she ended up hitching a ride out of the shop on a guard's leg. A woman, who lifts weights for exercise, tries to sell her jacket; while negotiating, she lifted a couple of employees as they deliberated. A man complains that his "as is" gas generator does not work; Les, reluctant to lose a longtime customer, has a simple fix to defuse the problem. A man gets angry when a television that he sold for $90 is on display for sale at $400; Seth knows that something is up when the man fails to produce a receipt for the transaction. A man tries to sell his 1960s Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots set, but was knocked out when he and Les couldn't agree on a reasonable price.
