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. 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.

Leading off this month’s listings are Scott numbers for the nondenominated (58¢) Shel Silverstein stamp issued April 8 and the quartet of nondenominated (10¢) Flags on Barns presorted standard definitive coil stamps that debuted April 14. Also Scott official are the five nondenominated (58¢) commemorative stamps picturing paintings by George Morrison and the nondenominated (58¢) Eugenie Clark stamp.

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:
