Scott Will Now Assign Numbers to Modern Imperforates

On January 28, 2015, Linn’s reported Scott Catalogue will now assign minor numbers to modern imperforate U.S. stamps.

Mystic applauds the decision. “These stamps are being actively collected, bought, and sold even without Scott numbers. Assigning numbers will make it easier for collectors and dealers,” said Mystic President Don Sundman.

As a U.S. stamp collector, Scott’s decision is something of a game changer. These modern rarities are getting the recognition they deserve – so you probably want to include them in your album.

Good news – it’s not too late. Since the U.S.P.S. released the first imperforate press sheets in 2012, Mystic has bought a supply of these scarce stamps for our family of collectors. We also produced album pages that illustrate them.

And while some issues are in very low quantity, we currently have every imperforate U.S. stamp issued from 2012 to 2014 in stock, along with illustrated album pages to display them on. 

This is a big deal.  The imperforate stamps were issued in very low quantity and weren’t sold in post offices.  Plus collectors were forced to buy the entire press sheets, which were very expensive, when many only wanted a single stamp.  Most of the press sheets sold out quickly – some before the first day of issue – and will never be reprinted.

So this is the ideal time to add these imperforate U.S. stamps to your collection. To help you reach that goal, here’s a list of our complete imperforate year sets and the album supplements that go with them. Need just a few stamps to fill in blanks in your collection? No problem – just scroll down and you’ll find images of every imperforate 2012-14 U.S. stamp. Just click on the pictures to learn more and place your order.
