After working for several auction houses, including as a consultant to Sotheby's, I ran my own auction house, Richard C. Frajola, Inc., from 1980 till 1995. Since then I have served as a consultant to several leading auction houses in the United States and served private clients. I also serve as an expert consultant to the Philatelic Foundation and Professional Stamp Expertisers. I can now frequently be found on the Frajola's Board for Philatelists trying to answer collector questions. Feel free to join us. I have published extensively since authoring a book on the postage stamps of Siam in 1980. Four new books have been published since 2005. I am honored to have been selected as recipient of the U.S. Philatelic Classics Society Stanley Ashbrook Cup in 2005, and the Elliot Perry Cup in 2006, for my philatelic literature contributions. Also, for the Hong Kong Study Circle's Webb Cup in 2006. (Read more)

  7. Your cover from Cairo to Kano was flown on October 27, 1925 and should have a backstamp of Kano. It is listed in the American Air Mail Catalog (AAMC) as Egypt flight #11 (value not listed). These were...
