2013 SCOTT CATALOGUE CLASSIC SPECIALIZED (WORLD 1840-1940)
The 19th edition of the Scott Classic Specialized Catalogue of Stamps and Covers 1840-1940 features thousands of value changes, numerous new listings and a host of editorial improvements, including revised and expanded listings.
There are more than 8,000 Classic-only value changes. In this edition the editors embarked on a special project to review the more expensive stamps, specifically those stamps with catalogue values of $2,500 or more. For the 2013 Classic Specialized Catalogue, the review has been completed through the country of Fiji. The values for the remaining countries will be updated for the 2014 edition.
There are substantial gains for never-hinged and on-cover values for a number of countries including Liechtenstein and Sweden. One of the major editorial enhancements made to this year’s addition is the reorganization of the Portugal Ceres listings. Air post semi-official stamps of the German State of Bavaria and Germany are listed for the first time in the 2013 Classic catalogue.
