‘Pawn Stars’: Corey Plays Big Brother When Jake Mans the Shop

by Samantha Whidden

While their dad and Pawn Stars co-star Rick Harrison is away, Corey Harrison is stepping up to play “big brother” while Jake Harrison manages the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop. 

In a sneak peek of Pawn Stars‘ latest episode, Corey is seen helping Jake around the shop. This includes helping a female customer with a french horn transaction.

“Now that my little brother Jake is old enough to work at the shop, he’s going to be picking up a few extra shifts. But if he’s going to be working the counter alone, I have to be there to make sure he knows what he’s talking about.”

While chatting with the customer about the french horn, it was revealed that it is a rare 1960’s instrument. The seller shared that her mother found the horn 20 years ago in a yard sale in South Florida and ended up paying $50 for it. “I do have an emotional attachment with this horn. Although it looks old and ugly, it’s opened doors for me because music is an international language.”

She then stated she’s hoping to get $5,000 and said she believes that seems like a pretty fair price for her being that it’s a rare instrument. 

The ‘Pawn Stars’ Crew Examines the French Horn

While checking out the instrument, the Pawn Stars duo state that the horn is actually interesting. Corey uses Jake’s expertise with guitars to help with this transaction.

“So since you play guitar, I’ll give you good guitar speak. You’ve heard of Fender and Gibson? Well, you have Conn, Holton, and Yamaha. Those are the three major manufacturers of French horns like this.”

The French horn presented wasn’t an instrument of the three manufacturers. It was an F.E. Olds, which started manufacturing horns in the 1930s. The company is also the only French horn manufacturer to make a five-valve according to Corey. 

As Corey and Jake continue to examine the French horn, Jake begins asking the woman what she is looking to do with the instrument. “Well it might be time for me to let it go,” the seller states. He then asks her how much does she want for the horn.  

That’s when the sneak peek cuts off. The caption of the video reads, “Corey gives Jake some brotherly guidance at the shop on tonight’s episode of #PawnStars! Will Jake be ready to man the counter, or is it too early for him to toot his own horn?”

The latest episode of Pawn Stars will air on Saturday (November 6th) at 9ET/8C on the History Channel. The hit series, which started on July 19, 2009, now has 17 seasons and more than 575 episodes.
