Recent US and UN stamps given Scott catalog numbers

Scott Catalog News by Charles Snee

Another month has passed, and that means it’s time to reveal another batch of new Scott catalog numbers.

The editors of the Scott Catalogs assign catalog numbers to new issues each month from the United States, United Nations, and postal services around the world.

The new Scott numbers provided here are for recently issued United States and UN stamps. New Scott issues for worldwide stamps are given in the Scott New Listings update in the expanded monthly issue of Linn Stamp News.

This month’s listings include Scott numbers for the pair of high value stamps for expedited mail service: the $8.95 Monument Valley Priority Mail stamp and the $26 Palace of Fine Arts Priority Mail Express stamp, $95. The four Title IX stamps and their unperforated counterparts from uncut press sheets without die cuts are also official Scott. UN Sports for Peace stamps for use from UN Headquarters in New York and offices in Geneva, Switzerland, and Vienna, Austria, were also given Scott numbers.

What do these Scott numbers mean? In short, the list of each stamp in an upcoming edition of the Scott 2023 catalogs.

Having these numbers handy will allow you to easily locate these stamps in Scott catalogs and learn more about their production and values.

Now that you have some context, here are the new US Scott numbers:
