One of the World’s Leading Auctioneers
Paul began collecting stamps as a young boy. In fact, his hobby was the impetus for his father’s founding of Cherrystone. With close to 50 years of philatelic experience, he attributes the success of Cherrystone to his knowledge and love of stamps. He is a member of A.I.E.P. (Association Internationale des Experts Philatelie) and is a recognized expert in Russian material, which he has exhibited around the world.
