* During ''Cigars of the Pharoh" every member in the smuggling operation had the mark of an old Egyptian Pharaoh on their bodies. Plus they used the Pharaoh's tomb as part of their operations. What's the connection? Well Opium has been in use since ancient times, including in ancient Egypt. So if the Pharoh in question was a known user or trader of Opium, so much so that he was remembered fo it thousands of years later, then it makes all the since in the world for Opium smugglers to adopt his symbol as their own.

*** You're MissingTheObvious: Red Rackham is a FAMOUS pirate, one nearly as famous as, I don't know, Blackbeard. Haddock has already good odds to have seen his face somewhere in a movie, a newspaper, a book; but anyway, since he heard about him, you can assume that he made some research about it, and in that case he'd have found pretty easily a picture of Rackham.

** One might interpret it as Haddock putting together Sakharine's connection to the legend just as he is telling the story, and therefore imagining his face on Rackham's head since he didn't literally know what Rackham literally looked like.
