[quote:cyber 899548:MV85Njg4MzVfMTU2NzMyMTBfNTJDNDFCN0E=] [quote:Anonymous Coward 496147] I am completely against someone going out and screwing old people, but I do not believe this is the case with these guys. Sure they make a killer profit on some of this stuff, but think about what would happen to this stuff if they did not buy it. The old person would probably die and it would be thrown away as garbage or mass auctioned at low prices. These guys are at least giving these people cash money which they can actually use. You also must think about the time and money that is needed to sell these items after they purchase them. [/quote] I could not have said it better. They have a business to run, bills to pay. I am not a picker but i buy gold and silver. I know I pay a lot more than the local jewelry stores but I make a good profit. Am I bad too. I have bills to pay. I know what it is like when an old timer dies and the family gets rid of things. I have actually seen (and bought) rolls of silver coins turned in to banks for face value by their kids. The bank can only pay the face value and then I reimburse the bank. [/quote]
I can NOT believe that the HISTORY channel would show such a disgrace to our older generation. TO think for one minute this would somehow be cleared to air is appalling. To brag or somehow boast about an unsolicited visit to Leland's farm and the price paid versus the actual value should be illegal. If this would have been my granddad I would have felt robbed of my family heirloom and treasures. The History Channel should immediately cancel this show!!!!!!!!!!!!! We were so looking forward to a new show that was really about hidden treasures in American not thievery we couldn't even finish the show.
These guys are scum bags !!!!! Nice job History Channel way to promote thieves . I would love to meet these guys face to face , and work a deal out with them. If you know what I mean ! And my parents always told me crime doesn't pay, unless you make a show for the History Channel .Way to teach kids its ok to steal from the older generation. History Channel you should make things right pay these people fair price for their stuff, and fire these dirt bags
