- ARE THESE BULLET HOLES OVER HERE?

- HUH?

- WE HAVE A PIECE OF THE BERLIN WALL HERE.

- SO HOW DID YOU GET IT?

- IT WAS ACTUALLY GIVEN TO ME BY THE MAN WHO PICKED IT UP.

- I MEAN, YOU CAN BUY THESE RIGHT NOW

FOR $30,000, $40,000, $50,000.

- I DON'T WANT TO SELL IT,

BUT I EITHER GOT TO GET RID OF THE GUN OR THE WIFE.

- WELL, MAN, SOME PEOPLE WOULD CHOOSE TO GET RID OF THE WIFE.

- I'M RICK HARRISON, AND THIS IS MY PAWN SHOP.

I WORK HERE WITH MY OLD MAN AND MY SON, BIG HOSS.

EVERYTHING IN HERE HAS A STORY AND A PRICE.

ONE THING I'VE LEARNED AFTER 21 YEARS,

YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT IS GONNA COME THROUGH THAT DOOR.

SO WHAT HAVE WE GOT HERE, MAN?

- WE GOT A COKE MACHINE THAT I'M TRYING TO GET RID OF.

- I CAN SEE WHY.

ARE THESE BULLET HOLES OVER HERE?

- YEAH, POSSIBLY.

TODAY I'M TRYING TO SELL THIS COKE MACHINE.

IT'S MODEL 39. THAT'S REALLY ALL I KNOW.

IT'S FROM THE '50s, BEEN IN MY FAMILY FOREVER,

BUT I JUST DON'T NEED IT ANYMORE AND WANT TO GET RID OF IT.

- SO WHAT'D YOU WANT TO DO WITH?

YOU WANT TO PAWN IT OR SELL IT?

- I WANT TO SELL IT.

- OKAY. - NOT MUCH I CAN DO WITH IT.

- IT FALL OFF A TRUCK OR SOMETHING?

- IT'S DEFINITELY AGED.

IT'S DEFINITELY BEEN AROUND THE BLOCK A COUPLE OF TIMES.

- YOU WOULDN'T KNOW BY THE LOOKS OF THIS COKE MACHINE,

BUT WHEN THESE THINGS ARE RESTORED,

THEY CAN BE WORTH THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS.

- WHAT'S LEFT OF THE INSIDES, BASIC REFRIGERATOR.

- OH, YEAH.

WHEN THE DOOR OPENED, I SUDDENLY HAD ARACHNOPHOBIA.

THERE SEEMED LIKE THERE WAS

500 SPIDERWEBS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS THING.

DOES IT ACTUALLY TURN ON?

- YEAH, YEAH, PLUG IT IN, IT TURNS ON.

IT DOESN'T LOOK GOOD, BUT IT TURNS ON.

YOU GOT TO REMEMBER, IT'S FROM THE '50s.

IT'S GOOD SOLID METAL.

- THIS IS JUST ROUGH.

- GOT POTENTIAL, BABY.

- [laughs]

IF I GET THIS COKE MACHINE FIXED UP,

I CAN SELL IT TO SUCH A WIDE VARIETY OF PEOPLE.

IT COULD BE AN AMERICAN.

IT COULD BE AN INTERNATIONAL SALE.

IT CAN BE A RESTAURANT.

IT CAN BE A GUY FOR HIS GAME ROOM,

JUST ANYBODY.

SO HOW MUCH DID YOU WANT FOR IT?

- I WANT $400.

- YEAH, I'LL PRETEND I DIDN'T HEAR THAT.

- I THINK $400 IS PRETTY FAIR FOR IT.

- I'LL GO 300 BUCKS ON IT.

- $350.

- 300 BUCKS.

- YOU KNOW WHAT? - IT'S A DEAL.

- THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

- I KNOW THIS COKE MACHINE LOOKS TERRIBLE,

BUT THERE'S A HUGE MARKET FOR RESTORED COKE MACHINES.

THERE'S NO MARKET FOR DESTROYED COKE MACHINES LIKE THIS THING.

IF I SPEND THE MONEY TO RESTORE IT,

THERE'S A POSSIBILITY I COULD MAKE A LOT OF MONEY.

- WHAT DO WE GOT HERE?

- IT'S AN 18TH-CENTURY FLINTLOCK PISTOL

USED AROUND THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR PERIOD.

AFTER THEY'D SHOOT SOMETHING,

THEY'D FLIP IT AROUND AND USE THIS

TO SMASH SOMEBODY IN THE HEAD WITH.

- THEY ACTUALLY MAKE SOME OF THESE

WITH AXES ON THE END OF THEM.

- YEAH, YEAH, ISN'T IT COOL?

I'M HERE TODAY TO SELL MY 18TH-CENTURY FLINTLOCK PISTOL.

I CONSIDER MYSELF AN AMATEUR COLLECTOR.

THIS IS THE OLDEST ONE I'VE EVER BOUGHT,

AND IT'S GOT A LOT OF HISTORY TO IT,

AND I THINK IT'S A REALLY GOOD GUN.

- SO WHY ARE YOU TRYING TO GET RID OF IT?

- WELL, MY WIFE IS KIND OF PUSHING ME FOR IT.

I LOVE THIS GUN.

IT'S, LIKE, BEEN THE CREAM OF MY COLLECTION,

AND, YOU KNOW, IT KILLS ME TO SELL IT.

I DON'T WANT TO SELL IT,

BUT I EITHER GOT TO GET RID OF THE GUN OR THE WIFE, AND...

- WELL, MAN, SOME PEOPLE WOULD CHOOSE TO GET RID OF THE WIFE.

- I'VE HAD HER A LONG TIME. SHE'S PAID OFF.

- WHERE'D YOU GET IT?

- I GOT IT AT A GUN SHOW.

THERE WAS A SELLER THERE WHO HAD GOT IT FROM AN ESTATE SALE,

AND I WAS TOLD AT THE ESTATE SALE

IT HAD BEEN IN THE FAMILY FOR GENERATIONS.

YOU KNOW, THE SELLER HAD A LOT OF INFORMATION ABOUT IT,

AND IF YOU LOOK OVER HERE,

THEY'VE GOT SOME OF THE MARKINGS

THAT ARE INDICATIVE OF SOMETHING IN THAT TIME PERIOD, SO...

- SO HOW MUCH ARE YOU LOOKING TO GET FOR IT?

- I'D LIKE TO GET A GRAND OUT OF IT.

I THINK IT'S WORTH IT.

- A GRAND, IT'S NOT THAT IT WOULDN'T BE WORTH A GRAND,

YOU KNOW, I JUST DON'T KNOW IF IT'S REAL.

I'D LIKE TO CALL IN AN EXPERT. - OKAY.

- IF IT IS REAL, THEN I CAN DEFINITELY TAKE IT,

AND WE CAN PROBABLY WORK OUT A DEAL.

- NO PROBLEM. - ALL RIGHT, DEAL.

I GOT TO MAKE SURE IT'S REAL.

BEFORE I MAKE A DEAL,

I GOT TO CALL SOMEBODY AND FIND OUT.

WHAT DO WE GOT HERE?

- COMIC BOOKS RANGING FROM THE '60s TO THE '90s.

- WHAT CAN I DO WITH IT, MAN?

- UM, SELL THEM.

I'M HERE TODAY TO SELL MY COMICS BOOKS,

WHICH MY FATHER PASSED ON TO ME.

I HAVE AT LEAST 130 COMIC BOOKS HERE.

THEY RANGE FROM MAYBE 50¢ TO A DOLLAR A PIECE.

I SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET AT LEAST $130 OUT OF ALL OF THEM.

- HEY, POPS, YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT COMIC BOOKS, MAN?

- AH, A LITTLE BIT.

ALL I KNOW IS THEY AIN'T WORTH

NEARLY AS MUCH AS THEY USED TO BE.

THEY USED TO BE SO HOT.

- WHY IS THAT?

- IT'S JUST--THINGS CHANGE, YOU KNOW?

PEOPLE DON'T BUY COMIC BOOKS ANYMORE.

THEY'RE NOT NEARLY AS COOL AS THEY WERE 15 YEARS AGO.

IT'S JUST LIKE BASEBALL CARDS.

PEOPLE BOUGHT BASEBALL CARDS.

THEY WENT UP TO A FORTUNE AND WENT STRAIGHT DOWN.

YOU KNOW, BUT SOME OF THEM ARE STILL WORTH A LOT OF MONEY.

- THE FIRST EDITIONS ARE WORTH MORE THAN ANYTHING.

- IT DOESN'T NECESSARILY HAVE TO BE NUMBER ONE

OR ONE OF THE EARLIER ONES.

SOME OF THE LATER ONES CAN BE WORTH MONEY

IF YOU HAVE A SPECIFIC ARTIST THAT DID THE ARTWORK IN THEM.

IF THERE'S SOMETHING REALLY STRANGE THAT HAPPENED

IN THE STORY AND EVERYONE WANTS THAT ONE,

THOSE CAN MAKE IT BE WORTH A LOT MORE MONEY, SO...

THERE'S A LITTLE BIT OF EVERYTHING

THAT MAKES IT WORTH MONEY.

I'M STILL NOT A BIG EXPERT ON THEM.

YOU KNOW, LIKE I ALWAYS SAY, IT'S ABOUT SUPPLY AND DEMAND.

- MOST OF THEM ARE KEPT IN PRETTY GOOD CONDITION.

- THAT ONE LOOKS A LITTLE...

RACY.

BLAZER...

WIDOW?

- IT SAYS "BLACK," DUDE.

- BLACK WIDOW, OKAY.

IT'S A REALLY WEIRD FONT, ALL RIGHT?

- WHERE DO YOU SEE A "Z" IN THERE AT ALL?

- GOD, I WISH THE [bleep].

I MEAN, YOU GOT LOTS OF COOL ONES HERE, X-MEN.

- OH, YEAH, LOT OF X-MEN.

- X-MEN ARE ALWAYS COOL. - OH, YEAH.

- BATMAN.

THIS LOOKS LIKE A TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLE I'VE NEVER SEEN.

MY UNDERSTANDING WAS THE EARLY TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES

WERE GRAPHIC AND VIOLENT AND ALL THAT SORT OF FUN STUFF.

- YEAH.

- HOW MUCH YOU WANT FOR THESE THINGS?

- CLOSE TO $150 AS I CAN GET.

- SO WOULD 20 BUCKS BE CLOSE ENOUGH?

I'M JUST... [laughs]

YOU KNOW, THE PROBLEM WITH THESE THINGS IS,

IS THEY SIT AROUND, I SELL ONE A WEEK,

AND THEN IT TAKES ME TWO YEARS

TO GET RID OF THE [bleep] THINGS.

I GUARANTEE YOU, MY DAD OVER THERE

WILL BE GIVING THEM AWAY TO KIDS LEFT AND RIGHT.

WON'T YOU, DAD?

YEAH, SO I'LL GIVE YOU, LIKE, 70 BUCKS FOR THEM, MAN.

- I'LL TAKE IT.

- ALL RIGHT, WRITE HIM UP, SON.

- GOT YOUR I.D. ON YOU, MAN? - YEP.

- THIS IS A 1941 PHILCO RADIO.

[loud humming]

- AND THE RED BIRDS GET ON THE BOARD.

- IT'S MISSING A LOT, A LOT, A LOT OF PARTS.

BASICALLY IT'S JUST A SHELL.

- MY WIFE WAS PISSED WHEN I BOUGHT THIS GUN.

NOW SHE'S REALLY GONNA KILL ME.

- SO WHAT HAVE WE GOT HERE?

- THIS IS A 1941 PHILCO RADIO.

- SO DOES IT WORK?

- YES, I HAD IT WORKING TODAY ON THE A.M. STATION.

- WHAT WERE YOU LISTENING TO?

- RUSH LIMBAUGH WAS ON.

THIS PHILCO RADIO IS IN GREAT CONDITION.

I'M NOT SURE WHAT IT'S WORTH,

BUT I'M HOPING TO GET $250 FOR IT.

I'D BE HAPPY WITH THAT.

- SO WHERE'D YOU GET IT?

- I GOT IT AT AN ANTIQUE STORE.

I JUST SAW THIS AND SORT OF LIKED THE LOOKS OF IT

AND THOUGHT IT WAS A COOL-LOOKING BOX.

I'M SELLING IT TODAY BECAUSE I MOVED FROM A LARGER HOUSE,

AND I DON'T REALLY HAVE ROOM.

I HAVE A LOT OF STUFF STACKED UP THAT I NEED TO GET RID OF.

- YEAH, I MEAN THERE'S NOTHING REALLY MAJOR.

THERE ARE JUST LITTLE TEENY LITTLE NICKS.

I MEAN, THE NICKS COULD BE FILLED IN WITH WOOD PUTTY.

BACK IN THE 1930s, WHEN YOU WENT OUT AND BOUGHT A RADIO,

YOU BOUGHT ONE THAT MATCHED YOUR FURNITURE.

IF YOU HAD MODERN FURNITURE, YOU'D HAVE A MODERN DESIGN.

IF YOU HAD TRADITIONAL FURNITURE,

YOU'D BUY A TRADITIONAL DESIGN.

LET'S CHECK OUT THE BACK. - ALL RIGHT.

WHAT I LIKE ABOUT THIS RADIO IS, NUMBER ONE, THE LOOKS.

IT'S GOT TUBES IN IT.

THEY ALL LIGHT UP AND STUFF,

SO IT'S INTERESTING FROM THE BACK SIDE TOO.

- EVERYTHING LOOKS GOOD.

I MEAN, I DON'T SEE A PROBLEM WITH IT.

NO BIG BURNED-UP TUBES OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT.

ANY OLD RADIO BEFORE 1970 HAD VACUUM TUBES.

VACUUM TUBES LOOK LIKE LIGHTBULBS,

BUT THE GLASS IS MUCH THICKER.

THE ELECTRONIC COMPONENTS IN THEM HAVE TO GET

TO A CERTAIN TEMPERATURE BEFORE THEY'LL WORK PROPERLY.

DO ALL THE BUTTONS WORK?

- YES, THIS ONE IS THE ON/OFF SWITCH.

- OKAY. - WANT IT ON?

- YEAH, LET'S TURN IT ON. - ALL RIGHT.

WAIT, THAT COMES OUT. THERE YOU GO.

TUBES HAVE TO WARM UP.

- THE EXPRESSION "IT TAKES A WHILE TO WARM UP,"

COMES FROM THE OLD RADIOS.

IT TOOK A WHILE FOR THEM TO WARM UP.

THERE WE GO. - I HEAR SOMETHING.

[loud humming]

- AND THE RED BIRDS GET ON THE BOARD WITH A RUN,

TWO HITS, NO ERRORS, ONE LEFT AFTER FOUR.

- OH, THIS IS GREAT.

- LISTEN TO THE BALL GAME NOW, HUH?

- THE MOMENT I TURNED ON THE RADIO

AND THE BASEBALL GAME CAME ON,

IT WAS LIKE, "WHOA, THIS FEELS LIKE 1939."

HOW MUCH DO YOU WANT FOR IT?

- I'M HOPING TO GET $250 FOR IT.

- I COULDN'T COME CLOSE TO THAT.

- WELL...

- I MEAN, $250, $350 IS WHAT THESE ARE WORTH REFINISHED.

AND IF YOU DID IT YOURSELF, YOU SPENT A WEEKEND DOING IT,

YOU COULD GET IT.

OKAY, MY PROBLEM IS, I BUY IT,

I HAVE TO PAY SOMEONE TO DO THAT.

- OH; WELL, WHAT'S THE BEST YOU CAN DO FOR ME TODAY?

- WHAT I LIKE ABOUT THE RADIO IS, IT WORKS,

IT'S IN PRETTY GOOD CONDITION,

AND IT WOULDN'T COST TOO MUCH TO REFURBISH IT.

I'LL GIVE YOU 100 BUCKS FOR IT.

- OH, NO, THAT'S TERRIBLE.

WHY DON'T WE MEET HALFWAY, MAKE IT $150?

- OKAY, DEAL, $150.

- ALL RIGHT. - COOL.

- THANKS A LOT.

- THIS IS THE TYPE OF ITEM A GUY'LL BUY OFF ME.

HE'LL BRING IT HOME, PUT IT IN HIS GARAGE,

FIX IT UP A LITTLE BIT, AND PUT IT IN HIS HOUSE.

IT'S A PERFECT PET PROJECT.

- TODAY WE'RE AT THE PAWN SHOP,

AND WE HAVE A PIECE OF THE BERLIN WALL HERE.

WE'RE GONNA HAVE IT EVALUATED,

AND HOPEFULLY WE'RE GONNA SELL IT FOR ABOUT $500.

- ALL RIGHT, A LITTLE ROCK OF THE BERLIN WALL.

- FOR 14 YEARS, THIS PIECE HAS BEEN IN MY SAFE

PROTECTED FROM FIRE,

AND I'M NOW IN A SITUATION WHERE

I'M SELLING SOME OF MY MORE PERSONAL ITEMS,

AND WE WERE WONDERING IF THIS IS VALUABLE.

- SO HOW DID YOU GET IT?

- IT WAS ACTUALLY GIVEN TO ME BY THE MAN WHO PICKED IT UP,

WHOSE SIGNATURE IS THERE,

AND THAT IS ACTUALLY HIS ARMBAND.

IT IS CERTIFIED HERE BY HIS HANDWRITING

THAT HE PICKED IT UP.

- AND HE GAVE HIS SASH AS PROOF TOO.

- THIS IS HIS ARMBAND.

- DO YOU KNOW IF HE WAS FROM THE EAST OR THE WEST?

- HE WAS ACTUALLY ON THE WEST SIDE.

- OKAY.

WELL, I DON'T THINK THIS WAS FROM THE WEST SIDE.

THIS SAYS DDR ON IT, DEUTSCHLAND DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC,

WHICH MEANS EAST GERMANY.

- I SEE.

- THE PIECES THAT ARE WORTH MONEY

ARE KNOWN PIECES OF ART FROM, LIKE, THE '60s.

BACK WHEN IT WAS UP, OKAY, THERE WAS GRAFFITI ALL OVER IT,

AND THERE WAS ACTUALLY REALLY FAMOUS SECTIONS.

NOW, THOSE SECTIONS WENT FOR A LOT OF MONEY,

$30,000, $40,000, $50,000

BECAUSE THEY WERE CONSIDERED ARTWORK.

ONE OF THE ARTISTS WAS KEITH HARING.

THIS, UNFORTUNATELY, IS NOT--

THERE'S NO ART THERE.

THE THING ABOUT THE BERLIN WALL IS,

IS A LITTLE ROCK ISN'T WORTH ANYTHING.

THERE WAS SOME PARTS OF THE BERLIN WALL

WORTH A LOT OF MONEY.

THERE WAS A GIANT MURAL BY KEITH HARING.

THAT WENT FOR BUKU BUCKS.

THE LITTLE ROCK GOES FOR NOTHING.

TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH, I REALLY WOULDN'T BE INTERESTED IN IT.

I MEAN, YOU CAN LITERALLY BUY THESE RIGHT NOW

FOR $3, $4 A PIECE ON THE INTERNET.

SO MANY PEOPLE STARTED PICKING THESE THINGS UP

AFTER THEY REALIZED THEY COULD START SELLING THEM.

YOU KNOW, THERE WAS, LIKE, 50 MILES OF WALL.

IT WAS A LOT OF CONCRETE.

IF THE BERLIN WALL WAS A LOT SMALLER OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT,

IT MIGHT BE WORTH SOME MORE.

I MEAN, PASS IT ON ONE DAY.

IT IS ONE OF THOSE THINGS THAT PEOPLE DO NEED TO REMEMBER.

PEOPLE WHO DON'T STUDY HISTORY ARE BOUND TO REPEAT IT.

- THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR TIME, RICK.

- THANK YOU; WE REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR ADVICE ON THIS.

IT'S A LITTLE DISAPPOINTING TO FIND OUT

IT'S NOT REALLY VALUABLE.

WE'LL BE HOLDING THIS PIECE,

AND WE'LL BE PASSING IT ON TO SOMEONE THAT SHARES

OUR GENUINE AND SINCERE FEELING FOR THE PEACE.

- I'M ON MY WAY TO RICK'S RESTORATION,

HAVE THEM TAKE A LOOK AT THE COKE MACHINE,

AND I'M REALLY EXCITED.

I'M HOPING THAT HE CAN FIX IT UP,

BECAUSE IF HE DOES FIX IT UP FOR A DECENT PRICE,

THIS THING COULD BE WORTH LOTS OF MONEY.

HEY, RICK, HOW'S IT GOING? - GOOD, HOW ARE YOU DOING?

- OH, PRETTY GOOD. - THIS IS MY SON, TYLER.

HERE AT MY SHOP, WHAT WE DO IS,

WE TAKE EVERYTHING OLD

AND TRY TO REFURBISH IT AND MAKE IT NEW AGAIN.

I LOVE TAKING SOMETHING THAT'S REALLY ROUGH

AND MAKING IT JUST ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL AGAIN,

FUNCTIONING CORRECTLY, I MEAN, TO THE "T,"

TO WHERE IT WORKS JUST LIKE IT DID IN THE DAY IN THE '50s.

- LIKE I SAID, A LITTLE ROUGHER THAN MOST.

- WOW, THAT'S THE ROUGHEST THING I'VE EVER SEEN.

SOMEBODY DIDN'T LIKE IT VERY MUCH, DID THEY?

WOW, THEY DESTROYED THAT.

IT LOOKS LIKE SOMEBODY DID ABANDON IT OUT IN THE DESERT

AND STOLE ALL THE PARTS.

THE COIN MECH'S MISSING.

THE BEZEL'S MISSING.

YEAH, AND THE INSIDE,

IT'S MISSING A LOT, A LOT, A LOT OF PARTS.

BASICALLY, IT'S JUST A SHELL.

- AS RICK'S POINTING OUT ALL THE THINGS

THAT NEED TO BE REPLACED ON THIS COKE MACHINE,

I'M THINKING, "THIS IS GONNA COST ME WAY TOO MUCH MONEY.

THIS MIGHT HAVE BEEN A BAD IDEA."

- I THINK WE CAN DO SOMETHING WITH IT, THOUGH.

I HAVE A DIFFERENT IDEA FOR THIS ONE,

THOUGH, IF YOU WANT TO HEAR.

- YEAH, WHAT DO YOU THINK?

- WHAT I'D LIKE TO DO IS CUT ALL THIS OUT

AND REDESIGN THIS WHOLE MACHINE

AND MAKE IT INTO A MACHINE THAT WILL BE A MULTI-DRINK MACHINE,

INSTEAD OF A SINGLE MACHINE.

- THE MARKET DETERMINES

WHETHER YOU SHOULD RESTORE AN ITEM OR NOT.

OLD GUNS, PEOPLE DON'T WANT THEM RESTORED;

THEY WANT THEM IN THE CONDITION THEY'RE IN.

HOWEVER, WHEN IT COMES TO COKE MACHINES,

PEOPLE WANT THEM RESTORED. THEY WANT TO SHOW THEM OFF.

THEY WANT THEM TO LOOK PRETTY. IT'S A PIECE OF FURNITURE.

IT'S NOT AN ANTIQUE.

- COCA-COLA ONLY OWNED ONE BOTTLE.

THEY DIDN'T END UP OWNING

A ROOT BEER OR A 7-UP OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT,

SO I THINK IF WE MAKE IT

TO WHERE IT TAKES DIFFERENT BOTTLES,

BEERS OR SODAS OR LONG-NECK BOTTLES,

I THINK IT WOULD GET MORE OUT OF IT.

- THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS, HOW COLD IS THE BEER GONNA GET?

- WELL, THE BEER'S GONNA GET AS COLD AS YOU WANT IT.

THAT STUFF WILL GET 32 DEGREES.

- WHEN THIS THING FIRST CAME OUT,

IT ONLY DISPENSED COKE. THERE WAS ONLY FLAVOR BACK THEN.

THERE WAS NO DIET COKE OR ANYTHING ELSE.

SO WHAT RICK IS GONNA DO,

HE'S GONNA MAKE IT SO IT DISPENSES DIFFERENT FLAVORS.

THE MORE FLEXIBLE I MAKE IT, THE MORE SELLABLE IT'S GONNA BE.

- WE GOING TO LUNCH? - CHUM, SHUT UP.

- 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.

HEY, SEAN, HOW'S IT GOING?

- HEY, COREY. GOOD TO SEE YOU AGAIN.

- WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THE ANTIQUE ARMS AND ARMORY

IS JUST BEING ABLE TO CONNECT IT WITH OUR HISTORY

AND JUST KNOWING THAT, GOSH, YOU KNOW,

THERE WAS A BRITISH OFFICER THAT HELD THIS FLINTLOCK PISTOL,

AND THEN NOW I'M HOLDING IT 300 YEARS LATER.

SO THIS IS YOURS? - YEAH, YEAH, YEAH.

- AND WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT IT?

- WELL, I GOT IT AT A GUN SHOW.

AND, YOU KNOW, THE SELLER HAD BOUGHT IT FROM AN ESTATE SALE.

AND IT HAD BEEN IN THE FAMILY FOR GENERATIONS,

AND I WAS FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO GET IT.

- OKAY, AND DID HE REPRESENT IT AS, YOU KNOW, AUTHENTIC,

AND DID IT COME WITH ANY PAPERWORK OR PROVENANCE

OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT?

- HE DID TELL ME IT WAS AUTHENTIC,

BUT THERE WAS NO PAPERWORK WITH IT.

SO HE DIDN'T HAVE IT.

YOU KNOW, IT'S AN ESTATE SALE, SO...

- MIND IF I HAVE A LOOK AND-- - PLEASE, PLEASE.

- WELL THIS FORM OF FLINTLOCK PISTOL WAS MADE

BY THE BRITISH MILITARY IN BETWEEN THE YEARS,

ABOUT, 1790 AND 1820.

IT'S A SMOOTHBORE BARREL

WITH A RANGE OF ABOUT 20 TO 30 FEET.

AND, YOU KNOW, IT WASN'T RIFLED,

SO YOUR ACCURACY WAS NOT SO GOOD.

- WHAT DO YOU THINK IT'S WORTH?

- IF IT'S AUTHENTIC AND TO THE PERIOD,

ANYWHERE BETWEEN $1,500 AND $2,500.

TO KIND OF GIVE YOU AN IDEA OF THE STANDARDS OF CONDITION,

YOU WOULD EXPECT TO SEE ALL THE METAL HEAVILY PITTED.

THIS ONE YOU CAN TELL WHAT THE MARKINGS ARE.

THERE'S NO, YOU KNOW, APPARENT MAJOR PITTING OR DAMAGE

OR DETERIORATION TO, YOU KNOW, THE METAL OR THE WOOD.

SO I WOULD CLASSIFY THIS AS A VERY GOOD TO FINE CONDITION.

- OKAY.

- UNFORTUNATELY, JUST RIGHT OFF THE BAT,

I KNOW THAT THIS IS, UNFORTUNATELY,

A REPRODUCTION.

- UM, OKAY, SO HOW CAN YOU TELL?

- FIRST OF ALL, THE MARKINGS WERE PUNCHED IN,

AS OPPOSED TO HAND-ENGRAVED.

THE CROWN-OVER-GR MARK IS FOR KING GEORGE III,

WHICH IS CORRECT FOR THE PERIOD GUNS.

HOWEVER, IT'S A BIT DIFFERENT IN STYLE.

IT'S NOT HAND-ENGRAVED.

YOU WOULD HAVE CERTAIN MARKINGS ON THE BARREL

THAT WERE PROOF MARKS FROM THE TOWER OF LONDON.

THERE IS JUST NOTHING ABOUT THIS GUN

THAT IS OF THE PERIOD.

- YOU'RE SURE?

- 100% POSITIVE.

IT LOOKS THE PERIOD, AND IT LOOKS LIKE IT HAS AGE,

BUT IT'S ALL ARTIFICIAL.

- SO OKAY, SO HOW MUCH IS THIS THING WORTH?

- UM, 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 OKAY, MAYBE THE THING IS A FAKE...

[bleep]!

[bleep], [bleep].

- YEAH, MAN, UNFORTUNATELY, THIS HAPPENS A LOT.

I MEAN, YOU GOT TO HAVE SOMETHING SAYING THAT IT'S REAL.

I FEEL BAD FOR THE GUY.

I MEAN, I WOULDN'T WANT TO LOSE THAT KIND OF MONEY EITHER,

BUT I MEAN, HE SHOULD HAVE GOT THE PAPERWORK.

- SORRY. OH, BOY.

MY WIFE WAS PISSED WHEN I BOUGHT THIS GUN.

NOW SHE'S REALLY GONNA KILL ME.

[bleep].

- SO LAST WEEK I DROPPED OFF A 1950s COKE MACHINE TO RICK.

I'M REALLY EXCITED TO SEE HOW IT TURNED OUT,

BECAUSE WHEN I DROPPED THIS THING OFF,

IT WAS JUST BEAT TO [bleep].

- HEY. - IS THAT MINE?

- WHAT DO YOU THINK? - I'M AMAZED.

THAT LOOKS BRAND NEW.

WHEN I FIRST SAW THIS THING, I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT WAS

THE MACHINE I DROPPED OFF A WEEK AGO.

I MEAN, IT LOOKED THAT GOOD.

SO WHAT'D YOU HAVE TO DO TO IT?

- WE RIPPED IT IN A MILLION PIECES,

AND WE SANDBLASTED IT

AND STARTED ALL OVER FROM SCRATCH AGAIN.

- YEAH, THIS WASN'T EVEN HERE WHEN I DROPPED IT OFF.

- YEAH, WE WENT AND DID YOU A BRAND-NEW PLATE ON THE FRONT,

NEW SILK SCREENING AND NEW DECAL.

- ARE THOSE DECALS STILL HARD TO FIND, OR...

- YEAH, THERE'S ONLY ONE PERSON IN THE COUNTRY

THAT IS ALLOWED BY COKE TO MAKE THESE DECALS.

YOU CAN'T REPRODUCE THEM.

THIS PART RIGHT HERE HAS ALL BEEN HAND-PAINTED ON THE FRONT

WHERE IT'S RAISE-LETTERED OFF THE FACE.

THE COIN MECH WAS MISSING,

SO WE ENDED UP PUTTING A BRAND-NEW COIN MECH IN THERE,

SET IT UP FOR 10¢,

BUT YOU CAN CHANGE IT IF YOU WANT TO.

THERE'S AN ADJUSTMENT RIGHT HERE THAT GOES TO ABOUT $2.40.

- SO WHAT ABOUT THE INSIDE?

- WELL, ON THE INSIDE, IN ORDER TO DO THE BODYWORK

ON THE OUTSIDE, BECAUSE IT WAS SO DENTED UP,

WE HAVE TO TAKE THIS APART, PULL THE LINER OUTSIDE,

AND THEN PUT NEW INSTALLATION IN AFTER WE POUNDED IT STRAIGHT,

PAINTED IT, AND THEN PUT IT BACK IN.

- HE'S DONE SO MUCH WORK TO IT.

WHEN I DROPPED THIS THING OFF, IT WAS RUSTED OUT.

I MEAN, EVERYTHING WAS BAD IN IT,

AND IT LOOKS LIKE IT WAS JUST ROLLED OFF THE ASSEMBLY LINE.

- WE FOUND YOU A BOTTLE MECHANISM

THAT ALLOWS YOU TO PULL THE BOTTLE OUT.

WE GOT YOU SOME NEW RACKS.

THEY ALLOW YOU TO GO ALL THE WAY FORWARD

FOR THE SMALL COKE BOTTLE

OR ALL THE WAY BACK FOR A LONGER BOTTLE.

- SO IF I KEPT IT FOR MYSELF, I COULD FILL IT FULL OF BEER?

- YEAH, YOU CAN PUT 72 OF THEM IN HERE.

- OKAY.

THE COKE MACHINE IS AWESOME

BECAUSE IT'S GOT THE ORIGINAL BODY,

AND THAT'S THE PART THAT'S WORTH MONEY.

AND THE OTHER GREAT THING IS, IT'S GOT A MODERN INTERIOR.

THAT MEANS IT'S GONNA WORK GREAT;

IT'S GONNA LAST, SO YOU GOT THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS.

UH, HOW MUCH DID IT COST ME TO FIX IT?

- RIGHT AROUND $2,500.

- THINK I'LL HAVE ANY TROUBLE FINDING A GOOD HOME FOR IT?

- [bleep] NO, THIS IS THE MOST-WANTED MODEL

YOU COULD POSSIBLY GET.

- THIS IS WHY I BRING MY STUFF TO RICK,

BECAUSE I KNOW IT'S ALWAYS GONNA LOOK GREAT,

AND I KNOW I'M ALWAYS GONNA MAKE MONEY.

SO WHAT DO YOU THINK I CAN GET OUT OF IT?

- WELL, RETAIL RIGHT NOW IS ABOUT $7,500 FOR THIS MACHINE.

- WELL, SWEET. GONNA MAKE A HOME RUN ON IT.

- YEAH, THIS WAS A GREAT INVESTMENT.

- 72 BEERS IN A WEEKEND?

ME AND MY FRIENDS CAN DO THAT.

I CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH, MAN.

- YOU'RE MORE THAN WELCOME.

THANK YOU. - OKAY.

OKAY, WELL, LET'S LOAD IT UP. - ALL RIGHT.
