Crop of new U.S. stamps given Scott numbers

May 3, 2021, 5 AM
The four Pickup Trucks stamps that were issued in July are among the new U.S. stamps that now have Scott numbers.

The latest batch of new Scott numbers is in. 

The editors of the Scott catalogs each month assign catalog numbers to new issues from the U.S. and postal services from around the world. 

After a slew of both U.S. and international stamps were assigned numbers in August, the September crop is made up entirely of new U.S. stamps, including the Star Quilt coil stamp issued July 6, the Jaime Escalante stamp issued July 13, and the Pickup Trucks stamps issued July 15.
