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 Mayflower in Plymouth Harbor commemorative forever stamp issued Sept. 17 to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the Mayflower in Plymouth, Mass. Also Scott official are the four contemporary Christmas stamps issued Sept. 24 in a double-sided pane of 20, which the U.S. Postal Service calls a convertible booklet.

What do these Scott numbers signify? In short, each stamp’s listing in an upcoming edition of the 2021 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:
