The Albrecht Dürer print featured on Pawn Stars incorporated in its design a date within the 1500s. In line with its presumed previous age, its proprietor was once hoping to stroll away with a minimum of a couple of thousand greenbacks after promoting it to the International Well-known Gold & Silver Pawn Store. That stated, when Dürer was once alive within the 1500s, he was once generating wood carvings. The ones had been then used like stamps to create a lot of woodblock prints, none of which was once inherently an unique replica. Whilst a woodblock carved through Dürer would subsequently were made within the 1500s, a print produced with it would theoretically be from any cut-off date.
Early within the negotiation procedure, present pawn store patriarch Rick Harrison defined that his common artwork appraiser, Brett Maly, was once busy with a gallery opening. Subsequently Rick had to use his personal artwork experience to assess the Dürer print’s worth upon its televised look. After a brief (scripted, however most probably consultant of prior negotiations) back-and-forth, Rick and the print’s supplier agreed upon a worth of $5,500.
Later within the episode, Rick was once ready to carry the paintings to Brett Maly. He defined that, whilst a Dürer print from the 1500s may be capable to promoting for upwards of $350,000, Rick’s was once in all probability from a minimum of the following century. That stated, he however estimated its worth at anyplace from $20,000 to 50,000. Rick, subsequently, had made the store no less than $14,500 in line with that valuation, counting the Dürer print amongst a number of giant wins for the Pawn Stars group.
