Our Stamp Numbering System and Abbreviations

We use the Scott stamp catalog for numbers exclusively.

However, where Scott has not yet issued a number or price, we have assigned our number (0123, 0124, 0125, etc.). This is for your convenience in ordering and our tracking purposes and will be changed in due course as Scott issues new numbers.
