Dirty Tape was the 9th episode of Season 5 of Hardcore Pawn. It originally aired on January 17, 2012.


A man, who did not have his receipt to redeem his pawn, argues with Rich over a $1 service charge. A couple of ladies try to sell a tambourine signed by Kurt Cobain and Dave Grohl, but learns that even the deceased Cobain's autograph isn't that valuable. A man's computer was stolen after leaving it in watch with a stranger, and now he wants to see the security tape to see who it was; later, when Les, Seth and Ashley reviewed the tape, they were convinced that the victim is part of a scam. A couple sells a 1964 bust of John F. Kennedy, one of only two made (the other put on display in Berlin), but Les gives a special deal to the man's wife to sweeten the deal. A tattooed man tries to sell a gold ring, but threatens Ashley after thinking the deal is too low. A former exotic dancer pawns her gold chain -- and gives an employee a free show.
