I have been involved professionally in philately since 1968 and ran my own brick and mortar 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 building and purchasing world class collections.
I serve as an expert consultant to the Philatelic Foundation, Professional Stamp Expertisers (PSE) and Philatelic Stamp Authentication and Grading (PSAG). I have published extensively since authoring a book on the postage stamps of Siam in 1980. Five new books have been published since 2005 and include two available free as downloads on my website ("The Pony Express, A Postal History" and "Mails of The Western Expansion, 1803 to 1861"). I am honored to have been selected as a recipient of the Royal Philatelic Society of London's Crawford medal in 2016, the U.S. Philatelic Classics Society Stanley Ashbrook Cup in 2005 and 2016, and the Elliot Perry Cup in 2006, for my philatelic literature contributions. Also, for the Hong Kong Study Circle's Webb Cup in 2006 for my book on U.S. Post Offices in China and Japan.
