If you are getting the 2020 edition of the Scott catalogues, be sure to check your Volume 2B. I received mine yesterday. The last 60 pages are printed upside down and in reverse order.

I contacted Scott, and they already knew of the problem. They had me contact the company from which I bought the catalogue to make the exchange. My replacement is on the way, and the company looked to make sure the pages in the book were correct.

Wow, that's crazy. I can't afford to buy these (or maybe I could if I stopped buying stamps!) but I will check our local library copy to make sure it does not need to be replaced.

Michael -

At least you got the pages. Problems with the Scott Catalogues have been happening in past years. I go to my local library and their 2018 Volume 2A was missing 60 pages of the Peoples Republic of China. I told them about it, so they would not think I somehow removed them, but it was clearly a mistake by Scott. My advice. check each volume you receive to make sure you get all the pages!

Years ago, Scott omitted a portion of the pages from India. You could write to Scott, and they sent photocopied pages of the missing part.

Does anyone recall(it was not all that long ago) when scott advertised scratch and dent sets? We purchased a set for the club, $115.00 shipped and they were fine.

re: Scott 2020 Catalogue Volume 2B Problem

You got that right! I went through and updated my collection values for Volume 1. Upside down works there too as values for most countries are tanking.

Scott claims that values are going down, because the stamp market is very quiet. Scott, doesn't consider the tens of millions of internet transactions each year as valid since the sales are not coming from "real" dealers. However, this is exactly where the market is flourishing. Too many of the old dealers still hanging around do not accept that reality, and are pushing themselves out of business by continuing with their "I sell as I always have in the traditional way." Dinosaurs are extinct, not being able to adapt to changing times.

Expanding upon Michael's post; of all species that have existed on Earth, 99.9% are now extinct. Species extinction is an important part of earth's natural history. Species which cannot/do not adapt make way for species with adaptable strategies.

i asked one dealer what happens to the dealers red boxes when he passes on ..his reply "nobody wants them" so i imagine they go to an auction house..and then an internet dealer.
