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 recently issued U.S. 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.

Included in this month’s listings are Scott numbers for the nondenominated (20¢) Brush Rabbit additional ounce-rate sheet and coil stamps and the nondenominated (36¢) Barns postcard-rate sheet and coil stamps. Also Scott official are the nondenominated (55¢) Love, August Wilson and Chinese New Year (Year of the Ox) commemorative forever stamps, and the $7.95 Castillo de San Marcos Priority Mail stamp and $7.95 Castillo de San Marcos Priority Mail stamped envelope. Note that imperforate examples of stamps from uncut press sheets without die cuts are also listed.

What do these Scott numbers signify? In short, each stamp’s listing in an upcoming edition of the 2022 Scott catalogs.

Having these numbers handy will allow you to easily locate these stamps in the Scott catalogs and learn about their production and values.
