Postmortem on the reality shoot

Bob McCullough of Pawn  Stories says he got enough good footage in 2 days to fill 3 30-minute shows  (with 22 or 23 minutes of program per show).

Our customers came through like champions.

Pick of the litter were 2 Father Damien postcards that were authenticated by out expert and valued at several hundred dollars.

So check the back of your desk drawer for old postcards, yeagh?

Dog of the days was probably the old home-remedy case containing about 20 vials of medicines that go back to the days of ancient Greece and beyond, like nux vomica (an emetic) and aconite (a nasty poison).

Most of the vials were empty, but the one marked “opium” still had 7 tablets in it. Our customer hadn’t noticed that.

The tablets may have been about 100 years old, and no doubt the opium has lost its potency by now. But we had to tell him, “We cannot buy opium.”

Stay tuned for even more news about reality pawn television.
