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.

Among the new stamps that are now Scott official are the quartet of stamps issued to celebrate Beatles frontman and musician John Lennon, and 10 stamps that salute the 50th anniversary of the Hot Wheels toy race cars. Pictured here is the menacing Sharkruiser. 

What do these Scott numbers signify? In short, these stamps’ place in upcoming editions of the 2019 Scott catalogs.
