The National Pawnbrokers Association named Seth Gold of Hardcore Pawn as “Pawnbroker of the Year” for 2013. Seth received his award at the 2013 Pawn Expo on July 17, 2013 held at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. “Seth Gold and the team at American Jewelry & Loan have forged new paths for the pawn industry with the media on a national level as well as within his own local community,” said Kevin Prochaska, president of the National Pawnbrokers Association. “Our industry has benefitted immensely from Seth’s dedication and hard work.” Seth’s nomination came from his commitment to the industry, community outreach and work with charitable giving campaigns and his selection by the NPA was unanimous. Each year the National Pawnbrokers Association presents the Pawnbroker of the Year Award to an NPA member whose performance has achieved significant accomplishments for the pawnbroking industry nationally.
