Old Man or known as "The Appraiser" is the founder and co-owner of the Pawn Shop. On a Pawn Stars episode trivia, he said that he will never retire.
After serving in the U.S. Navy and losing a million dollars in the real estate market, Richard Harrison uprooted his family and moved to Las Vegas in pursuit of a fresh start. Opening the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop in 1988, he had to learn a little about a lot really fast. From Rolexes to antique cars, Richard is now armed with the rare skill of assessing the value of anything accurately. With uncanny precision, Richard is the king of purchasing underpriced merchandise, even from archival pawn shops, which has helped turn his initial $10,000 investment into a multi-million dollar business. Disciplined, wise and cunning, Richard drives a hard bargain and is anything but easy to please.
