Gold Meltdown was the 17th episode of Season 6 of Hardcore Pawn. It originally aired on December 4, 2012.


Kane Hodder, an actor who played Jason Voorhees in four of the Friday the 13th films, comes to American Jewelry to have a gold pendant featuring Jason's trademark hockey goalie mask; however, it needed to be done right away so Kane can wear it at a local horror film convention. However, when Les was testing a torch when he was testing a customer's purported bar of gold to see if it was real, he mistook the Jason mask as a piece of scrap gold, leading him to blame Seth for miscommunication. As a result, the pendant had to be remade in four hours, or risk getting it delayed and losing potential customers in what Seth perceives as a new line of business for American Jewelry. Also: A woman gets irate when she tries to redeem her pawn of her television and computer; she gets even more upset when she learns that she was late redeeming her computer pawn. A couple of men fight like "children", leading to Ashley to play mommy and send them to time out. And a man tries to sell his Clay-Adams female anatomy model, but learns from Les that novelty does not equate to value.
