No matter what you collect, its a great place to visit as well as buy. They mostly know their product and if you know yours will negotiate prices. Their inventory keeps changing, so don't go just once.

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.

This store is fine if all you want to do is look at some old weapons and coins, but don't try buying anything here or you will get ripped off. I spent a lot of time negotiating the sale of 2 gold coins with Jerry...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
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
