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.

Leading off this month’s listings are Scott numbers for the four U.S. nondenominated (58¢) Mountain Flora stamps that were issued March 14 in double-sided panes of 20 and coils of 3,000 and 10,000. The Scott editors also assigned catalog numbers to the African Daisy global forever stamp and the Tulips and Sunflower Bouquet stamps. Also Scott official are the four U.N. $1.30 Trolls Food Heroes Campaign stamps. The U.N. Endangered Species stamps for use from U.N. headquarters in New York City and the offices in Geneva, Switzerland, and Vienna, Austria, also received Scott numbers.

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:
