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 nondenominated (60¢) Christmas: Virgin and Child stamp issued in double-sided panes of 20, the four nondenominated (60¢) Holiday Elves special stamps issued in North Pole, Alaska, and the 10 nondenominated (60¢) Charles M. Schulz commemorative stamps featuring characters from Schulz’s Peanuts comic strip. Also Scott official are the imperforate varieties of the Charles M. Schulz stamps from uncut press sheets without die cuts. Recent U.N. stamps assigned Scott numbers include issues honoring the exploration of Mars, World Bicycle Day, World Chess Day and World Humanitarian Day. One U.N. semipostal stamp, three U.N. stamped envelopes and a U.N souvenir card also have new Scott numbers.

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. and U.N. Scott numbers:
