2023 Scott Catalogue CLASSIC SPECIALIZED (WORLD 1840-1940), Printed Edition

Item #: C23C

NEWEST EDITION! Released November 14, 2022


2023 Scott Catalogue Classic Specialized (World 1840-1940)

What's in the Classic Specialized Volume?

This volume includes listings for the 350+ countries around the world where stamps were issued between the years of 1840-1940. Beginning with the first ever stamp issued in Great Britain in 1840, the Classic is the primary source for the issues of the first century of philately. 

In contrast to the standard catalogs (volumes 1-6), this unique volume provides further insight and greatly expanded information on early worldwide issues in the form of expanded listings. Expanded listings range from color varieties to paper varieties to individual never-hinged issues.

The Scott Classic Specialized Catalogue is also a major source for listings and values for covers, multiples (including strips and blocks of four) for select countries, stamps without gum as well as used pairs.

As we continue to research classic stamp issues each year, we are always adding new varieties to our existing listings. And of course, the Classic is always updated with the latest values for stamps from the years of 1840 to 1940.

A Premium Hardcover to Celebrate the Classics

The Classic Specialized catalog is the only Scott Catalogue to benefit from an attractive hardcover binding. Each year, when we release this premium edition, we choose an elegant new color for the Classic cover, which is then hardcover bound completely with that color from front to back. Inlaid in the colorful hardcover binding, you'll find the volume's title printed upon it in an attractive font that accompanies a featured stamp from this cherished time period. 

Since all other Scott catalogs are softcover, this peerless volume will stand out as a handsome and welcome addition to your end table or bookshelf.

About the Scott Catalogue

The Scott Catalogue is the definitive, industry-leading catalog for stamp collectors the world over. Within each catalog you'll find all the resources you need to find, identify, value and organize your stamp collection. Included within the pages of the catalog are stamp listings comprised of images, values and the industry-recognized standard Scott Number.

The catalogs, in publication since 1868, span over a century and a half of the celebrated hobby of philately (also known as stamp collecting). It is with great pride that we continue to publish this historic catalog each year.

Our teams take great care to identify, obtain, analyze, scan and catalog postage stamps issued all throughout the world. This printed catalog, available in English, explores the first century of philately, comprising 350+ countries across the world between the years of 1840-1940.

With each annual release, we update the catalog in several ways. Compared to last year's edition, you can expect to find:

  • Thousands of updated values
