Scott Catalog News – By Charles Snee

It’s time to serve up another plate of new Scott catalog numbers.

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

The new Scott numbers detailed here are for U.N. stamps from the offices in New York, N.Y.; Geneva, Switzerland; and Vienna, Austria. New Scott numbers for worldwide stamps are given in the Scott New Listings Update in the expanded monthly issue of Linn's Stamp News.
