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 10 nondenominated (55¢) Heritage Breeds stamps issued May 17 at George Washington’s estate in Mount Vernon, Va. Minor-number listings are also provided for the imperforate Heritage Breeds stamps from no-die-cut press sheets.

Also Scott official are the nondenominated (55¢) Go For Broke: Japanese American Soldiers of WWII stamp (perforated and imperforate), the quartet of nondenominated (55¢) stamps featuring paintings by Emilio Sanchez (perf. and imperf.), the nondenominated (36¢) Mallard Drake postal card, and the nondenominated (36¢+36¢) Mallard Drake paid reply postal card.

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.

Now that you have some context, here are the new U.S. Scott numbers:
