Scott numbers assigned to Snowy Beauty, other recent U.S. stamps
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. 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 nondenominated (60¢) Snowy Beauty stamps issued in double-sided panes of 20, the nondenominated (60¢) Kwanzaa stamp, the nondenominated (60¢) Women Cryptologists of World War II commemorative stamp, and the nondenominated (60¢) Hanukkah stamp. Also Scott official is the imperforate variety of the Women Cryptologists stamp from uncut press sheets without die cuts.
What do these Scott numbers signify? In short, each stamp’s listing in an upcoming edition of the 2024 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:
