The list of 2024 updates for Volume 1 has been revealed!
As always, countless updates were made across the entire catalog. Countries that received special attention during this year’s updates include Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil and many more. Full details of this year’s update were announced in Linn’s Stamp News magazine, and are also available online here: The new 2024 Scott Volume 1.
Every year, our philatelic team (who work on both the Scott Catalogue and Linn’s Stamp News) work tirelessly to catalog all the new issues and update values for stamp listings throughout each volume. Because the world is a big place, our editors can’t cover all the philatelic activities for every nation every year. That’s why we publish these announcements detailing just which areas received the most attention, so collectors like you can be aware of what changes await you inside.
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, is one of 6 volumes cataloging stamps from specific countries of the world. Each of the 6 volumes contains specific countries of the world, and are organized alphabetically from A-Z for your convenience.
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
- Hundreds of new listings
- Updates to old listings
- More images
- Other editorial enhancements
- And more!
As the amount of information we pack into each catalogue grows, so too does its weight. That’s why Volumes 1-6 each year now come in 2 parts: A and B. For example, when you order Volume 1, you will receive BOTH Volume 1A and Volume 1B. Prior to 2018 (our 150th anniversary), each of our volumes was a single book.
