Have you ever shot one of these? Yeah, I shot one. So did you do that? Yeah. When? At Archery Ranch. I don't remember that. Did You? Don't remember a lot of things. I'm here at the pawn shop today to sell my very old crossbow. My uncle gave Ms Rosco years ago. He's a collector of antique weapons and figured me being an archer might appreciate it. I've had the crossbow for about two years now, and it is very cool, but it would be nice toe. Get some money for it. This thing looks pretty old, Gino. Where it's from, you know, actually, not too sure, but, uh, obviously it's not from this century. Well, no, it's not from this century for sure. You know, these things have been around over two thousands. Crossbows were like the first powered weapon. They're pretty amazing for what they are. You know, basically, somebody figured out problem with bow and arrow is, you know, you've got fatigue, but it was something like this you could actually do a lot of damage with it. The pope actually had them banned from civilian years. You know, anybody with a simple amount of training could take out nobility with one of these rights. All in all, a really, really, really scary weapon for someone to have. You mind if I take a look at it? Go for it. Yeah. This is pretty cool, man. Some type of shield of arms or something. Right there. Have you seen that before, Cory? I don't know what that is, but it leads me to believe it's British. Scott Looks like two keys on a red wax. Still no idea thing. Look, Fall original. What are you looking to do with it? Well, I'm just looking to sell it. So how much were you looking to get out of it? I was around 20,000. That's possible. You know, realistically, that might be possible. I don't know if there's a whole lot of stuff I gotta figure out here. Do you mind if I have a friend of mine? Come check it out. Yeah, of course. I'm interested to find out more about it myself. All right. You wanna give Alex called. Yeah, give you this a few minutes. I'm actually excited that experts coming by to take a look at it. I'm really hoping it's worth what I'm asking, if not more. Wow, this thing's a beast, to say the least. This'll is a pretty classic mid 18th century crossbow. 17 40 maybe his latest 17 70 by the mid 18th century. Crossbows are obsolete. They had must gets the hip cannons. They weren't making crossbows to take in the battle. So what this actually is? There was a whole recreational sport of target crossbow shooting. But the thing that super rare is actually the windless. The bow is so hard to pull by itself, they actually invented an entire whining system. The technical term for that is a winless crossbows. Really beautiful. So this tag von Schloss sick mayor engine. So this is a castle and it's in the southern part of Germany. It's still there today. You can go take tours of it. It's gorgeous. Upon a cliff near a river. This castle was owned by a family, the Homans dollars. So that would mean then that this is the Hohenzollern family coat of arms. They had kings and princes, and they've been ruling part of Germany for hundreds of years. Okay, well, is it fireable? Mmm. I wish. But this bow string, I do think that's original. So I think if we tried Thio put tension on him. I'm pretty sure it'll snap. You don't want us to do that right after you guys Percocet. Go ahead and do whatever you want, but right now, I mean, it would be really fun, but we will. We will hurt the value of a great poster. Okay, then lasted, not least. What's it worth? Well, the good thing is, it's a really nice example. It's really well built. It's got some really nice features to it. And I think the fact that has the winless this is the really nice thing about it. Based on how old it is and the condition it's in, I think it's worth $10,000. Okay, Well, Alex, man, I appreciate it. You're welcome. Thank you. Nice to meet you. Thank you. So you're asking 20 grand for it? Yeah. You know, I know. That's a good chunk of change. I mean, I don't know what you guys were going to give me. But based on what Alex just told me, um, I'd offer you about five grand. I don't know if I get rid of it necessary for that cheap. It's still pretty cool in its own. Right. So I think for that, I'll hang on to it for now. Maybe it sell it later on in life. All right, man. If you ever change your mind, you know, I'm actually, guys, thanks so much bigger. All right, if you ever want to shoot it, you know I'm at Yeah. Sounds good to see you go.
