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 Scott Stamp Monthly.

Included in this month’s listings are Scott numbers for the first two stamps in the U.S. Postal Service’s Stellar Formations series of Priority Mail and Priority Mail Express stamps. Also Scott official are the nondenominated (68¢) Year of the Dragon stamp in the Lunar New Year series and the nondenominated (68¢) Constance Baker Motley stamp.

What do these Scott numbers signify? In short, each stamp’s listing in an upcoming edition of the 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:
