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.
