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 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.S. and U.N. stamps issued during the past month. New Scott numbers for worldwide stamps are given in the Scott New Listings Update in the expanded monthly issue of Linn's Stamp News.
Headlining this month’s new listings are the delightful Mister Rogers stamp and the bold quartet of STEM stamps celebrating science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Also Scott official are new United Nations Flag and Endangered Species stamps for the U.N. offices in New York City; Geneva, Switzerland; and Vienna, Austria.
What do these Scott numbers signify? In short, these stamps’ place in upcoming editions of the 2019 Scott catalogs.
