    And call me gullable, but I think Rick would make that offer to that lady even if the cameras weren't there....maybe not $15k but more than the $2k she offered. You don't last that long, in Vegas, by screwing people and getting a bad reputation.

    There is something to be said for walking out of the place with a stack of cash.

    I bet he would have just paid the $2000 if:
    1- The cameras were not there.
    2- This was not a setup to make the shop look good.
    3- As I mentioned in another thread, this was probably worth $40,000 + if he jumped up to 15k that fast.

    I buy some watches and Diamonds from a pawn type jewelry shop and know the owner. He has stories like this one person came in with 2 watches and wanted $200 for both. One was worth about $100 and the other was a philippe patek worth $10,000. Of course he paid the $200 for both watches.

    How about that guy wanting $150k for that Civil war set? That's the problem with that musuem guy...he knows his stuff, but to him all this stuff is priceless (from a musuem perspective) but that doesn't mean it's actually worth anything on the open market. He put dollar signs in that guy's head! lol

    Wouldn't an offer of 15K when you threw out a 2K figure get you to wondering how much it was really worth and make you reconsider any offer.

    They usually give an approximation of what the item is worth, did I miss that?

    Just for kicks I looked up a Faberge Spider Brooch on Google and the latest one they make sells for $58,000.00. Just sayin'... The old original one was probably worth a lot more. :)

    That is only when they call in an expert, which they didn't do for this item.

    I thought it was funny that she did try and strongarm him...you could see him kicking himself for not taking her original offer!

    Interesting because I did a search just now and there was links to a bunch of stories that the Faberge Spider Brooch doesn't exist?

    It sounds like they went out of business and have just made a comeback. I misread the quote though.. It says their jewelry STARTS at 55,000.00.

    To be honest it appears a lot of the links appear to be bogus and probably a result of the increased searches induced by the show. All the articles and things are dated 9/7/2010.

    Somewhat interesting but I didn't spend too much time looking into it.

    So was nobody else shocked to see Bob Dylan on the show?

    I was shocked. Really shocked. The Chumley asking for his name was obviously a put on, but according to an article in Rolling Stone, it was not set up, and Chumley did stupidly walk into Bob Dylan walking to his bus or whatever.

    In the article they also noted the producers had a very hard time securing the rights to broadcast the footage with Dylan in it. I assume this is why none of it was used in any way shape or form to identify or promote the episode.

    I do not know if the Bob Dylan part was a set up, but it sure "felt" like a total set-up.

    I liked the line "you could sell it to another Chumlee"

    :confused:

    All the ads I saw for the episode showed Dylan walking down the strip (alone) for a few seconds. Admittedly not much but he definitely had a presence in the ads.

    I hate those types of scenes...I'm surprised he didn't come back with the autograph and a $5 footlong!
