5.0 out of 5 stars This is a must have for the serious collector who wants to keep up with additions, deletions, & number changes ... March 25 2012
By D. Fowler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Things have come a long way since we simply added hinges to our stamps and stuck them in a Scott's Minuteman. All the while we were doing that there were those astute philatelists who were poring over the variations in stamps. One of the things I like about the Specialized are the commentaries and notations about individual stamps and their variations. For example, in this issue there is a special feature entitled, "Scott Recognizes the Two Dies of the 1903-08 2c Washington Shield Definitives as Major Numbers." They discuss the 599A/634A analogy, the new listings for Scott 319 and 320, and the die differences (type I and type II). Even with the side-by-side, five point examples it's hard to discern the differences.

With the continual research, it's hard to keep up with everything, but the Scott Specialized does it's best to keep up with the latest "discoveries." There is a section in the lengthy introduction that lists the additions, deletions, and number changes between the 2010 and 2011 catalogues. Although not exactly an easily portable book, I've seen more than one person carry these catalogues to bourses to make sure they can reference what is available on the tables to what they need. For those unfamiliar with the catalogue, it is replete with full-color photographs, representations of local handstamped covers, advertisers from whom you can purchase philatelic needs, etc., etc. I'm going to lay out a basic table of contents as of this time you cannot search inside the book.

If you're not a serious collector and have purchased one of the last two catalogues, you may wish to pass on this one. Serious collectors and dealers most likely will want this addition. We tend to get a catalogue every few years as an occasional one meet our needs. The catalogue is not perfect, but we love having an updated edition on hand now and then.

Stamp catalogs are soooooo expensive that buying one a couple of years old is the only way to go. Especially since I collect a country that issued its last stamp in 1899.
