While everything is for sale, I consider a visit here to be more for viewing than acquiring. The shop offers an impressive collection of antique forearms, ephemera and coinage going back to pirate days, though the focus seems to be mid 1800’s. As expected, the...More

Such a great store for gold and silver coins and related collectibles. Barry Cohen visited with me for several minutes on the attributes of different gold coins that they have available. I was able to make an informed decision.

While I couldn't afford anything in here, I sure enjoyed visiting looking and drooling. The staff is helpful and knowledgeable.

Disclaimer: I am absolutely nuts over historical artifacts. I am also passionate about antique firearms. That being said; this store is HEAVEN! The staff is knowledgable and friendly without the overbearing "sell, sell, sell" mantra I've experienced elsewhere. The store is unpretentious as well, putting...More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
