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 and postal stationery. 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 nondenominated (63¢) Waterfalls stamps issued June 13 in Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming and the nondenominated (66¢) Northern Cardinal stamped envelope issued July 9 in 10 formats. Also Scott official are the two varieties of the $25 federal duck stamp picturing tundra swans. In addition, the Scott editors assigned numbers to various U.N. stamp and postal stationery items for U.N. headquarters in New York City and the two offices in Geneva, Switzerland, and Vienna, Austria.

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. Scott numbers:
