Cachet Display Catalog: FDC Cachetmakers Index

      This page lists all the Scott numbers I know about which are missing from my 2020 Scott Specialized Catalog . Some of them may be stamps that were announced by the USPOD or the USPS, but for some reason were never issued. Some of them may have been just place holders for possible additions to a projected multi-year definitive series. If you are trying to collect one example of a First Day Cover (FDC) for every Scott number, by definition, no FDC's exist for these numbers. Documenting why these numbers are missing is the ongoing research purpose of this page.

What's New on this page

      I am not aware of any source which states the facts behind why each listed Scott number does not exist, or, for that matter, why I cannot find that these missing numbers are not listed separately (as they are on this page) anywhere else in one place, either on-line or in print. I only checked my "2020 Scott Specialized" from U.S. Scott #294 on, because that was the first issue listed in Volume I of the Planty 2nd. edition which is known to have been serviced as a First Day Cover (FDC) which had a cachet on it BEFORE the cover was cancelled. As for everything on this page and all of my other FDC related pages, only that information that might be useful to First Day Cover collectors is included here. For example, Stamp quantities issued, Numbers of FDC's canceled for each issue, Stamp colors, Perforations and Whether or not imperfs exist for an issue, are some of the stamp details that are outside the scope of this site.

      Does anyone know of the actual source where any number listed below was "announced"?

      missing = Scott numbers that are not listed in the 2020 Scott Specialized Catalog . Whether or not they were listed in a previous edition is unknown to me. I have no way of finding out if they were. I cannot make a 1,400 mile round trip to the American Philatelic Research Library (APRL) in Bellefonte, PA just to look at over 100 years of the 1914 to 2020 Catalogs to see if they were previously listed and then deleted.
      ------------ = I know Scott numbers exist for the issues not listed.
      ------------** = I have not yet personally checked to see if there are any more missing Scott numbers in the gaps between the listed missing items.

      All Scott Catalog prefix Types: C, UO, UX, etc., for which at least one FDC is known, are listed in the order they appear in the Catalog.

          My work-in-progress permanently off-line master list of all U.S. Stamps known to exist serviced on cacheted First Day Covers, has 7,100 lines, so far, just like the seven sample lines above, on which I am indexing the 2nd edition of Planty, my
    2020 Scott Specialized Catalog (e.g. "Sc20/180"),
    1983-2010 Linn's Stamp Yearbooks (e.g. "Ln85/9-14"), and the
    Minkus Catalog Numbers (e.g. "#CM1152") which were only published in the 1983-1989 Linn's Yearbooks.

    U.S. Scott #1 - #293 -- all have no designated FDOI so I did not check for any possible missing numbers.

          It would be really helpful if Scott permanently added #520-522 with a cross reference to #C1-C3. Other stories wanted.
