WE HAVE PURCHASED SEVERAL OF THESE SILVER QUARTERS GRADED AND ENCASED BY THE TOP TWO GRADERS OF COLLECTIBLE AND RARE COINS - PCGS AND NGC. THEY ARE GRADED PR70 (PROOF 70) AND SP70 (SPECIAL PROOF 70), EACH OF WHICH SIGNIFIES A "PERFECT" COIN. I DON'T KNOW HOW MANY OF THESE ARE OUT THERE, BUT "PERFECT" COINS ARE RARE IN THEMSELVES. COME BY AND TAKE A LOOK.
WE ALSO HAVE A NUMBER OF THE LARGE 5-OUNCE VNMP SILVER COINS GRADED MS68 OR MS69 (MS = MINT STATE); THEY ARE ONLY TWO AND ONE POINTS FROM "PERFECT," RESPECTIVELY (MS70 = PERFECT). THE 5-OUNCE COINS GRADED MS70 ARE SCARCE AND ARE PRICED ACCORDINGLY. THAT'S WHY WE CHOSE 68 OR 69 GRADES.
THESE COINS ARE VERY COLLECTIBLE AND SHOULD ONLY INCREASE IN VALUE OVER THE YEARS. THEY MAKE GREAT GIFTS. LOCATED ON THE FIRST FLOOR.

Remember... our hours are 11AM - 5PM (sometimes later) Monday through Saturday
We have nearly 4,000 square feet of space on our first floor, nearly 8,000 square feet on the second floor, for a total of almost 12,000 square feet of space devoted to all manner of antiques, collectibles, and souvenirs. You can wonder around our shop for hours.
We sell (and buy) coins, vintage currency, jewelry, Civil War and World Wars artifacts, glassware of every description, antique guns, swords, knives, (many) dug bottles, scarce and very rare first edition and signed books, antique furniture, clocks, artwork, photographs, postcards and trade cards and tokens, stained glass, vintage documents, antique tools, etc., etc.
Much of our merchandise comes from local estates and auctions, thus many items have a Mississippi or Louisiana connection.
If it's old and collectible, we love it.
We also have a large selection of stained glass. A few pieces can be seen in the photo below.
Our hours are 11AM - 5PM Monday through Saturday; closed Sundays.
We have quite a few antique watches and clocks, most of which are in running condition
The one below is one of my favorites
This is a fine old grandfather clock
These are photos of just a few of the clocks and watches available - first and second floors

This is but a tiny sampling of some of the magnificent antique furniture we have on hand.
Antique furniture will hold its value. In many cases it will not only maintain its original purchase price, but actually increase in value as time passes.

This isn't the largest cannon ball fired into Vicksburg by the invading horde, but it's close (13" was the largest in diameter). It weighs about 150 pounds, and is fused, thus it is classified as a shell or a cased shot, depending upon whether or not it has thin or thick walls and does or does not contain lead or iron shot. $650, first floor.

Obsolete notes are a very desirable collectible; they sell very quickly. Whereas we once had a large selection of obsoletes, our inventory has been sold to near depletion. We do expect to acquire a small collection in the near future.
