Scott Catalog Numbers for Shel Silverstein, Other Recent U.S. Stamps

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 US stamps. New Scott issues for worldwide stamps are given in the Scott New Listings update in the expanded monthly issue of Linn Stamp News.

Topping this month’s listings are Scott issues for the undenominated (58¢) Shel Silverstein stamp issued on April 8 and the quartet of undenominated (10¢) Flags on Barns stamps presorted from definitive standard stamps that have debuts on April 14. (58¢) commemorative stamps featuring paintings by George Morrison and the undenominated stamp (58¢) Eugenie Clark.

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:
