Richard Benjamin "The Old Man" Harrison is co-owner of the shop and is part of the main cast of the hit History show Pawn Stars. He often chastises the shop's employees, complaining about their productivity or something else that he can find to insult them about. All of this is done in good humor, as many times his son Rick will ask for his expertise in antique items.


Richard is originally from Lexington, North Carolina, and served 21 years in the United States Navy. In 1988, he decided to go into business with his family, and he says it is the worst decision he's ever made.
