I have a set of stamps for the Ivory Coast which I'm dammed if I can find in my Scott's catologue issue date was 10 Nov 2005.They have nothing listed? They are listed on Stampworld though.
This is the set in question Spotted-necked Otter.

re: can't find in Scott's

Since 2001, very few stamps from the Ivory Coast have been listed by Scott and Gibbons. That includes this set.

Scott has a list of stamps declared to be illegal by the Ivorian post office. This set is not in that list, but I would think the list is not complete. Gibbons does not provide a list.

SG lists these in an appendix after Ivory Coast

re: can't find in Scott's

Hi Michael
I wouldn't think this set would be on the list as it is a WWF issue.But why it is missing from Scott's baffles me .
So I have asked Scott's the question .

re: can't find in Scott's

When Gibbons lists it in an appendix, like Dave said, that usually means the same as Scott's list, or that there isn't enough information to determine that the stamps were issued for postal reasons.

But, Scott is constantly adding older stamps from African nations. Maybe this will be added from your inquiry? Please let us know what Scott says.

My Gibbons catalogs are from 2008, and the appendix is not there.

re: can't find in Scott's

I looked in my SG 2010 and couldn't find any mention of what is in the 2014 copy ,so does that mean it took SG over 5 years to make up their minds about this particular issue?

re: can't find in Scott's

That's pretty much how the appendices work in SG. I'm guessing that the stamps were unofficial issues never intended for postal use, so SG waited to see if regular use was evident.

re: can't find in Scott's

My German is only good enough to say that yours is the se-tenant block of 4 ("Viererblock A"), cataloging in 2013 at €8.00.

As you can see, they also list 5 souvenir sheets for this issue: 1 for each of the stamps, and then a 5th one that shows all 4 stamps.

Unfortunately, my German is not good enough without a significant assist from Google Translate to discern the 2 paragraphs at the bottom of the listing. Perhaps someone whose German is sharper can provide some insight about what they say. Maybe it'll shed some light on the possible tentativeness of this issue?

re: can't find in Scott's

I received a reply from Chad Sneed,he informed me that he had forewarded my enquiry to the Managing editor.
I forwarded your query to Scott managing editor Tim Hodge. He will investigate and get back to you
