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 provided here are for recently issued U.S. and U.N. 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 pair of high-denomination stamps for expedited mail service: the $8.95 Monument Valley Priority Mail stamp and the $26.95 Palace of Fine Arts Priority Mail Express stamp. Also Scott official are the four Title IX stamps and their imperforate counterparts from uncut press sheets without die cuts. The U.N. Sports for Peace stamps for use from U.N. headquarters in New York City and the offices in Geneva, Switzerland, and Vienna, Austria, also received Scott numbers.

What do these Scott numbers signify? In short, each stamp’s listing in an upcoming edition of the 2023 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:
