A man whose $50,000 coin collection was first stolen, then hocked, cannot recover it from Las Vegas’ famous “Pawn Stars” pawn shop. Reason: The hock shop claims it melted the coins down.

According to a criminal complaint filed by the State of Nevada in Clark County Justice Court, a coin collection valued by its owner, David Walters, at up to $50,000, was stolen from Walters’ Las Vegas home in November 2013 by Walters’ niece, Jennifer Beckman.

Court documents say Walters’ collection–kept in a bag hidden under a dresser–contained such rarities as a 1903 St. Gaudens $20 gold piece and Silver Morgan coins from the 1880s. It also contained contemporary 1 oz. American Buffalo gold pieces.
