Let’s lay that one to rest first: No. “Pawn Stars” is continuing. Father Richard Harrison, son Rick Harrison and grandson Corey Harrison are all just fine and Shafer was not a member of their family. So then who was Leonard Shafer?
It appears he was a coin collector who was featured on the hit show several times. He was from California, and according to coininfo.com, he was a NGC authorized dealer based in Burbank.
Information beyond that is sketchy. He wasn’t famous or a reality star; one viewer did note he was born on D-Day. There’s no indication that “Pawn Stars” plans a special tribute to Shafer beyond last night’s mention.
