Included in this month’s listings are Scott numbers for the five Enjoy the Great Outdoors commemorative forever stamps issued June 13, and the four Hip Hop commemorative forever stamps issued July 1. Both sets of stamps were issued in panes of 20. Also Scott official are the nondenominated (55¢) Flag and Stars stamped envelope and the federal duck stamps picturing black-bellied whistling ducks.
