Jimmie DeRamus

The Don of Pawn

The former president of the Louisiana Pawnbrokers Association, Jimmie “The Don of Pawn” DeRamus is hailed as a walking encyclopedia and frequently called upon across the country for his expertise. Having collected memorabilia and antiques since he was a boy, he opened this museum-like pawnshop, Silver Dollar, over 25 years ago. Big Daddy says his vast knowledge is what makes his business the best in the USA.
