A History of Serving Collectors

A brief history of major milestones in the Amos Advantage story so far.


First launched in as Scottonline, we began by serving collectors who sought to purchase their Scott Catalogs online, as had become the trend in the emerging ecommerce industry.


Scottonline became known as Amos Advantage, expanding our offerings beyond the Scott brand to include supplies, accessories and publications for a variety of hobbies. 


We gave our site a major facelift to improve the overall user experience, and make the site accessible on all your devices -- desktop, tablets AND mobile!


Amos Advantage began to offer FREE shipping to US customers who spend more than a certain amount per order. We're committed to fast, free shipping whenever and wherever possible. For more information, see our Shipping Page!


In 2021, we celebrated our 20th anniversary and thank you for your support over the years and look forward to a bright future supporting the hobbies we all love!

As Markets Evolve, so does Amos Media

In addition to operating Amos Advantage, Amos Media is also a well-known multimedia publishing company with a storied history and 21st-century approach to creating and delivering impactful content to hobbyists of all kinds.


The roots of Amos Media were laid in 1876, when Gen. James O. Amos founded The Shelby County Democrat broadsheet newspaper and commercial printing firm in Central Ohio. At one point Gen. Amos printed 14 different broadsheet newspapers for Shelby-area towns.


The Sidney Printing and Publishing Company, as Gen. Amos’ business came to be known, got into magazine publishing in 1942 when it began printing Linn’s Stamp News, a publication founded by George Linn in 1928 and purchased by the Amos family when Linn retired in 1969. Linn’s content can be found online and is also distributed in a weekly news format magazine. It is the preeminent source for information on stamp collecting, also known as philately. Learn more about Linn's Stamp News at 


Amos Media launched Coin World magazine in 1960 to meet the news and information needs of coin collectors, also known as numismatists. Available online and in weekly and monthly print editions, Coin World is, like Linn’s, the most reliable source in its field and keeps its audience in the know better than any other numismatic news outlet. In addition to Coin World’s news, features and opinions, its Coin Values section serves to inform collectors what their coins are worth. Coin World’s Coin Values is always online and is featured in the middle of each monthly print edition. Coin World also publishes an annual Making the Grade guide to coin-grading as well as an annual Guide to U.S. Coins, Prices & Value Trends. Learn more about Coin World at 


Along with Linn’s Stamp News magazine, Amos Media has since 1984 published the leading stamp catalog: the Scott Catalogue. First published in 1868, the Scott Catalogue has been relied upon by collectors for over a century and a half. More than 500,000 stamps from over 600 different countries (past and present) are listed in Scott Catalogue. The expansive catalog is updated and released annually in a set of six Standard volumes, one U.S. Specialized volume, and one Classic Specialized volume. 

General James O. Amos founded Amos Media Company in 1876 with the purchase of the Shelby County Democrat, which later became the Sidney Daily News.
