James H Cohen & Sons information
Lonely Planet review
From the sidewalk windows, you might be inclined to pass this one by if you’re not interested in guns. Cohen & Sons does sell antique guns for people who like to play cowboys and Indians with authentic hardware. The choice of firearms here includes some remarkable specimens of flintlocks, colts, Winchester ’73s and even a French musket or two. Beyond weaponry, the place is a repository of relics and historical curiosities, with many fascinating artifacts on view in glass display cases. Duck in for a look at the ancient coins from Celtic and Hellenic cultures worn smooth by human hands millennia ago. Or disturbing slave documents and notarized bills of sale for the transfer of human chattel. The store’s unique selection of campaign buttons for US presidential elections spans back to the 1900 contest.
