  • - To be honest, I don't know how to respond.
  • Come on, man.
  • You work with this guy?
  • - How you doing, gentleman? - Hey.
  • Oh, pretty good.
  • MAN: I have a bronze statue I'd like to sell.
  • RICK: Do you know much about it?
  • I don't know what to tell you about that.
  • RICK: This is a statue called Pegasus.
  • And this is Perseus.
  • Perseus was the mythological figure that killed Medusa.
  • So what can you tell me about this thing?
  • MAN: It was made in 1888 by the French sculpture mile Picault.
  • If this is a genuine Picault, we're
  • talking thousands of dollars.
  • His sculptures are highly collectible.
  • The patina looks right.
  • What doesn't look right is there's
  • some [inaudible] right here.
  • And that crack right there is from when they cast it.
  • It didn't happen later.
  • To be honest, I don't know how to respond.
  • RICK: You see this? JIM: Yeah.
  • RICK: It says Made in the USA below it.
  • This was not made in 1888.
  • What you've seen and what you can prove
  • is two different stories.
  • I don't care what you say.
  • I don't care what you tell me.
  • But I know you're full of [bleep]..
  • You know-- it's all right, Antoine.
  • I got it. I got it.
  • Um, that's just what I see.
  • We really appreciate you bringing it in.
  • But it's not for us.
  • That's all I can tell you.
  • [music playing]
  • COREY: Earlier today, I met with a guy
  • who wanted to sell me a pistol.
  • I've never really seen one of these,
  • so I had to call my buddy Sean to come down and check it out.
  • So this is yours?
  • Yeah, yeah, yeah.
  • And what do you know about it?
  • Well, I got it at a gun show.
  • And the seller had bought it from an estate sale.
  • And it'd been in the family for generations.
  • And I was fortunate enough to get it.
  • What do you think it's worth?
  • If it's authentic to the period,
  • anywhere between 1,500 and 2,500.
  • Unfortunately, just right off the bat,
  • I know that this is, unfortunately, a reproduction.
  • Um, OK.
  • So-- so how can you tell?
  • The markings were punched in as opposed to hand engraved.
  • You would have certain markings on the barrel that were proof
  • marks from the Tower of London.
  • There's just nothing about this gun that is of the period.
  • It's value would be about $75 to $100.
  • You know, I paid 800 bucks for this.
  • I'm sorry.
  • You got burned.
  • Yeah, so OK, maybe the thing is a fake.
  • I-- [bleep].
  • My wife was pissed when I bought this gun.
  • Now she's really gonna kill me.
  • [bleep]
  • COREY: This guy brought in the nicest
  • looking Gibson I've ever seen.
  • And it's serial number one of a high-end series.
  • You said you wanted 50, man.
  • I mean, I got to make money on it.
  • Yeah, I can understand that.
  • COREY: Would you go 40?
  • I really don't want to come off of that asking price.
  • COREY: 43.
  • 48?
  • COREY: 45.
  • MAN: You got to remember this is serial number one.
  • I'm hesitant even to drop to 48.
  • I-- I really don't want to move from my price.
  • [music playing] - All right.
  • Deal.
  • [music playing]
  • Chum, you want to go write him up?
  • All right.
  • I just need your ID.
  • Kind of having some second thoughts, man.
  • CHUMLEE: Hey, Corey. Come here.
  • This guy's having second thoughts.
  • COREY: Counting the money, man.
  • I don't think I can sell it, man.
  • COREY: You sure?
  • I don't think so.
  • COREY: Have you seen the new $100 bills?
  • They're beautiful.
  • COREY: Have ever seen 100 of 'em.
  • MAN: Looks great, but, man, this is my baby.
  • COREY: You want 50 for it?
  • I just don't--
  • Hey, that's what you came in here wanting.
  • I know, man.
  • I just don't think I can part with it.
  • COREY: Well, man, I can't force you.
  • But if you change your mind, I'll be here, all right?
  • All right. I'm sorry, man.
  • Take care.
  • CHUMLEE: Dude, I'll have some of that money.
  • MAN: I got a Pez collection I'm looking to unload today.
  • CHUMLEE: Got any candy?
  • MAN: No.
  • These have no candy in them at all.
  • These are all from the 1960s, 1970s.
  • What good are candy dispensers without candy?
  • Come on, man.
  • You work with this guy?
  • These are very, very collectible.
  • And it's a great hobby.
  • I know it might look childish to you.
  • But there's definitely money into it.
  • I have Casper the Friendly Ghost in the original box
  • from the 1960s.
  • This particular Pez here goes for, like, $300 to $400.
  • I have the Mickey Mouse in the original box.
  • It's a die-cut.
  • One of my coolest pieces I like is the original Batman.
  • Very tough to find.
  • What do you want for 'em?
  • MAN: I'd like to grab 2,500 for 'em.
  • Gonna have to grab it somewhere else.
  • I'm gonna offer you a grand, my friend,
  • just because I got to resell 'em.
  • You could put these on the internet
  • individually and definitely make your money back on these.
  • Well, man, I'm not looking to break even at all.
  • MAN: I understand that.
  • But these three pieces alone are a G-note.
  • - $1,000 is what I can do. - Fine.
  • COREY: All right, buddy.
  • Let me get out of here, man.
  • I can't believe one of them guys offered me $1,000 for them
  • 50 pieces of Pez.
  • That's an insult to the Pez community.
  • I can't believe it.
  • That's why they're chooches.
