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 U.S. stamps issued during the past month. 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 four Spooky Silhouettes stamps issued Oct. 11 in Milford, N.H., and the quartet of Holiday Wreaths stamps that debuted Oct. 25 in Freeport, Maine.

What do these Scott numbers signify? In short, these stamps’ place in upcoming editions of the 2021 Scott catalogs.

Having these numbers handy will allow you to easily locate these stamps in the catalogs and learn about their production and values.

Now that you have some context, here are the new U.S. Scott numbers:
