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

Every time I come to New Orleans, I stop by this place. They have a plethora of antique weapons to look at dating back as far as man has used gunpowder to send a projectile down range toward a target. They also offer a wide...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.

Disclaimer: I am absolutely nuts over historical artifacts. I am also passionate about antique firearms. That being said; this store is HEAVEN!
