The cast of the "Pawn Stars" TV show spends its days assessing the value of items that come into the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop in Las Vegas.

Well, we've assessed their latest move -- and we think it's priceless.

On Wednesday, Reddit user MrsLeslie posted a note that Rick Harrison, one of the show's stars, penned to a young fan with autism who wrote in.

According to MrsLeslie, the boy's mom said:

Little J is a huge fan of 'Pawn Stars,' and he talks about the show incessantly. I encouraged him to write them a letter, which he did, and he offered to sell his Gameboy to them for $30. I added a cover letter describing J and his autism -- and although I told them that I didn't expect them to actually buy his Gameboy, I did ask if they could at least reply.

Not only did Harrison reply, he also sent $30 and the Game Boy back to 'J.'

A spokesperson confirmed to HuffPost on Friday that Harrison was indeed the author of the note.

Now, we're sure 'J' wouldn't trade it for anything.
