Scott numbers assigned to Sun Science, Tap Dance, U.N. 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 detailed 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 10 nondenominated (55¢) Sun Science stamps issued June 18 in Greenbelt, Md.; the nondenominated (55¢) Yogi Berra stamp issued June 24 in Little Falls, N.J.; the five nondenominated (55¢) Tap Dance stamps that debuted July 10 in New York City; and the nondenominated (55¢) Mystery Message stamp released July 14 in Washington, D.C. Minor-number listings are also provided for the imperforate Sun Science, Yogi Berra, Tap Dance and Mystery Message stamps from no-die-cut press sheets.
Also receiving Scott numbers are the U.S. $25 Lesser Scaup federal duck stamp issued in self-adhesive panes of 20 and souvenir sheets of one, and U.N. stamps focused on the 70th anniversary of the U.N. Postal Administration, endangered species and ending racial discrimination.
What do these Scott numbers signify? In short, each stamp’s listing in an upcoming edition of the 2022 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:
