Gold War was the fourth episode of Season 3 of Hardcore Pawn. It originally aired on March 8, 2011.


Ashley has a problem with employees doing nothing when they are not tending to customers; however, neither Seth nor Les are willing to take care of it themselves. A woman refuses to pay for a preferred customer "gold card". A man tries to sell a gold chain; however, the design was out of style, but when the customer wanted more than the market price of gold for it, Les determines how much it's worth with a coin toss. A woman in line makes a scene when Seth refuses to let her use the restroom, which are off-limits to customers; furthermore, she is a day late on her loan payment. A man sells his gumball machine to Les, who refuses to budge from his offer; Les then turns around and sells it to another customer, while its former owner is still in line collecting his money. A woman complains that her fur coat, which was in hock the last couple of years, has a tear; her husband is willing to pay for the repairs, but the woman wants much more than that.
