Volume 5 of the Scott Standard Catalogue of Postage Stamps

Scott Catalogue 2023 Volume 5 (Countries N-Sam) SKU #C235This volume is the fifth of six essential volumes of the Scott Standard Catalogue of Postage Stamps. 

The catalogs, in publication since 1868, are updated annually by our expert team of philatelists. Our team scours the globe hunting down all new issues and obtaining stamps from prior periods, across all the countries of the world where stamps are issued.

We then catalog each stamp, (scanning a high-resolution image of it using state-of-the-art scanning technology), assign in at Scott Number and then our valuing analysts research its value. The resulting value is included alongside the listing.

Updated Annually

Volume 5 is updated annually and the new listings are released in August of each year.
