Antiques >Cohen James H & Sons Inc
A few years ago I had a very interesting conversation with Mr. James Cohen about duel pistols. He took the time to give me a thorough explanation about these pistols. Ever since, I’ve been looking forward to visiting his store again and discuss the purchase of either French or British duel pistols.
I finally made it back to New Orleans for the first time since 2005 on 7/4/10. The first store I visited on 7/5 was James Cohen & Sons. Unfortunately, I was treated very badly by Mr. Jerry Cohen. He first almost refused to shake my hand, he then proceeded to treat me and my wife in an incredibly rude manner and with total lack of courtesy or respect.
After the conversation I had a few years ago with his father, Mr. James Cohen, I must say that I’m incredible surprised.
While at their store I noticed they have a large number of 1909 Argentine bayonets for sale. Most of these bayonets are rather common. Weyersberg Kirschbaum & Co. manufactured at least 180,000 of this model bayonets. However, a few smaller runs for small military units were also produced. Consequently, some of these bayonets have different serial number nomenclatures and can be extremely rare. I explained this to Mr. Jerry Cohen and asked him if I could somehow look at the serial numbers of those bayonets they have for sale. My request apparently bothered him.
They lost a customer for absolutely no good reason.
