Six United States stamps celebrating prepared dishes from south of the border and the Caribbean were issued April 20 in a double-sided booklet. The booklet is now Scott official, and each of the six stamps has been given its own catalog number.

Joining the Delicioso booklet stamps with its own Scott number is the Smurfs sheet from the United Nations, along with the U.N. International Dance sheet of six.

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.
