Scott Specialized Catalogue of United States Stamps & Covers 2013: Confederate States-Canal Zone-Danish West Indies-Guam-Hawaii-United Nations: United ... Postage Stamp Catalogue: U.S. Specialized) Reviews
A superb product at surprisingly low cost, impressively packaged and delivered in 3 days. Amazing ! Encore ! As an 'ole geezer who was collecting stamps seriously some 60 years ago, and who now is preparing to pass on pounds of stamps, most pre-1960's, to a couple of young grandsons, I wanted a somewhat recent, authoritative guide to help enthuse and inform them of the myriad perspectives on geography and history available thru postage stamps. Viola ! Although a radical transition from my ancient Scott catalogs I unloaded decades ago, once I got into effective navigation of the catalog, I was amazed - I don't think it's too much to say 'excited' - by the beautiful color illustrations, extensive valuation features and expansive coverage of this catalog. Where my former Scotts were hard-bound, had b/w illustrations, and were laid-out a little more sequentially, and where *two volumes* encompassed the world, it is apparent that I will need to acquire additional volumes to provide all the info the boys will need. Too, due to the superb value, careful and timely shipment by PJC Collectibles, I'll begin my search there. Thanks, Amazon . . . now, if only *you* could as effectively and completely consolidate my confused 10+years of account data.
The latest in the Scott Catalogue series, with well-photographed examples in very accurate tones and colors of almost every stamp design of the USA, including the Confederate States, US Possessions, the UN, and FDCs, etc. A frightful cover price, considering that it is pretty much a straight-forward reprint with a few additions, but there is no better reference work, and unless you can track down a lightly-used discount copy, or a clearance item from yet another failed bookstore, this is the best price you can get.
The only comprehensive catalog of US stamps. A great buy, and an essential reference for serious collectors. All the details for identifying US and US-related stamps are contained in this book, which is well-written and well-illustrated with the features that distinguish one stamp from another.
This was for a relative in England. Says it is the best catalogue for American stamp collectors around the world.
I've have much older Scott catalogs, all in black and white, I was VERY glad to have this one in color. Great book, easy to use, filled with lots of helpful information.
Handy reference tool!
I am a collector of us and this is an exceptional reference volume that i have used for years. As you know, it plus other Scott volumes are issued annually and i am updating from the 2011 volume that i have.
The Scott Specialized Catalogue of US Stamps & Covers is pure gold. No better resource exists for US stamps, and covers not only the stamp, but also special cancellations & colors that increase a pre-1900 used stamps value. A must have guide for US collectors.
