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 Wild Orchids stamps that were issued Feb. 21 in double-sided panes of 20 and rolls of 3,000 and 10,000 coil stamps. Also Scott official are the Let's Celebrate stamp issued Feb. 14 at the Aripex stamp show in Mesa, Ariz., and the commemorative forever stamp issued March 4 in honor of legendary golfer Arnold Palmer.

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:
