I am seeking
a way to find out how much a menu from the banquet for
Charles Lindbergh after his flight from New York to Paris is worth.
The date on the menu is June 14,1927 and held at the Hotel Commodore,
New York. I also have letters and stamps. Most of them
are Tin-Can mail and pre-WW1. I'm not sure what they are.

in other postal related items.
