World Stamps

Slew of United Nations stamps are now Scott official

Jan 3, 2017, 12 PM
The United Nations Postal Administration highlighted its 17 sustainable development goals on stamps issued Oct. 24, United Nations Day. All of the stamps now have Scott numbers.

Another batch of new Scott numbers is in.

The editors of the Scott catalogs each month assign catalog numbers to new issues from the U.S. and postal services from around the world.

All new Scott numbers detailed here are for 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.
