Then buyers would come in looking for some of that "old pawn" jewelry (because they thought it was made better than the stuff made for the tourists). However, the words "old pawn" are often now interchange with "dead pawn" or just pawn. " The word "pawn does not describe the age of a piece. At Western Trading Post, when we use the terms pawn or dead pawn, it simply means the item has come out of pawn at some point.If we say "old pawn, " it means an older item which has come out of pawn at some point. We try to describe the approx. Age of a piece using words like contemporary (1980s to now) or vintage (1970s and 60s) or old 1950s or earlier and antique (approaching 100 years old, circa 1920s or earlier).
