A pawn is a loan on your everyday items, such as jewelry, electronics, tools, and guns, generally anything of value
All we need is a government issued ID to get you started. There is no credit check required. The amount of your loan is determined by the value of your collateral not your credit score. You have 120 days to either pay your pawn loan (plus the pawn interest) in full, and receive your merchandise back, or simply pay the pawn interest charge for the month to extend your loan another 30 days. If no payment is received within 120 days, your merchandise will be put out for sale to the general public.

While we can never be 100% sure, statistics show that less than 1 percent of pawn items are stolen goods. Nebraska pawnshops are required by law to report all items either pawned or bought. Bud’s Pawn Shop electronically transmits all information for each pawn or item we purchase the day we take it in. This includes: a description of the merchandise, serial number, model number, and the name, government identification number, address, picture and thumbprint of the person who brought it to us.
How do you determine its value? Each jewelry item is inspected individually. Diamonds, Gold and Silver are tested to verify authenticity. Gold and Silver are tested using a special precious metal acid that determines the karat of gold. Diamonds are tested with a diamond tester, as well as a jeweler’s loupe. Carat weight of the diamond, as well as the color, cut and clarity are all taken into consideration.
YES, not only do we buy broken or unwanted gold, but silver as well. The price of gold and silver is based on market value and can change daily. The market value for 24k gold is significantly higher than that of 10k gold. The higher the karat, the more your gold is worth.
