Another batch of new Scott numbers is in.
The editors of the Scott catalogs each month assign catalog numbers to new issues from the United States and postal services from around the world.
The new Scott numbers detailed here are for U.S. and United Nations stamps. New Scott numbers for worldwide stamps are given in the Scott New Listings Update in the expanded monthly issue of Linn's Stamp News.
Connect with Linn’s Stamp News:
The latest new issues are headlined by eight new round forever stamps showing different sports balls issued June 14. The most recent Endangered Species stamps from the United Nations also received Scott numbers.
What do these Scott numbers signify? In short, these stamps’ place in upcoming editions of the Scott catalogs.
Having these numbers handy will allow you to easily locate these stamps in the catalogs and learn about their production and values.
