Does anyone have a catalog value for the three UN miniature sheets with the primates on them? Thanks.

I cannot give you catalog prices for the sheetlets, only the 2011 Scott catalog value for the blocks. Would those do?

Sure, thanks! That would be helpful, and if anyone knows the value of the sheetlets, I'd still be interested.

2011 Scott standard catalog price for blocks:

New York 925-928, $3.20
Geneva 465-468, $7
Vienna 388-391, $6.40

For comparison, 2008 Scott US Specialized price for blocks of 4 and (pane of 16):
$3.20($13), $7($28), $6.40($26)

As you can see, there are no net changes in the price for the blocks from 2008 to 2011.

Thank you! So that might suggest that the pane prices are constant -- or near-constant -- as well.

Thanks again.

I need to bug you one more time: Could I get the Scott catalog numbers for them, too? Sorry for the inconvenience.

The Scott catalog numbers are already included in the post; they are the numbers preceding the 2011 catalog values.

Sorry. Long day. I imagine they are 925a-925d, for instance.

Thanks again.

The Scott catalog numbers I gave you are for the individual single stamps from the block. The traditional Scott numbering convention (they don't always follow it any more, but...) is take the upper left block of 4 from the upper left pane position (all the panes are the same for these UN issues). The Scott numbers are assigned in the following order UL, UR, LL, LR. In other words, picture the block from the upper left corner, the Scott numbers for the New York issue are:

#925 #926

#927 #928


The intact block of 4 would be New York #928a. The same convention applies for the Geneva and Vienna stamps. The blocks of 4 for those would be Geneva #468a and Vienna #391a. Scott does not assign a separate catalog number for the full pane of 16.

Yeah, I could upload a snippet from the catalog, but I've already maxxed out my Amos copyright violations limit for the year...

I think I need to slam my head against the desk right now for my idiocy. The piece I was missing? I never realized there were only four different stamps per sheet. I thought there were sixteen different stamps per sheet. That may explain why it startled me that you were only providing four catalog numbers.

Sorry to waste your time. It makes perfect sense now that I look at the sheets.

Thanks.

It's never a waste of time if I (or someone else) learns something!

Personally, I've learned a lot from my mistakes/misunderstandings.

BTW, thanks for posting those pics! I stopped collecting UN around 2005, so I don't see much of the new issues any more. I pulled out my UN album from archive late last year to pull some stamps for someone, then promptly misplaced it during the office move

Well, at least I finally found my scanner power adapter!

Ouch. I've done stuff like that, too. No fun.

You'd think a red 2 volume Lighthouse hingeless set with matching dustcases would be easy to find... to add insult to injury, I can't find the stamps I pulled either.

Hi mcgeesorg!

The Stanley Gibbons prices (2011), in pounds, are as follows:

SG994/7 (New York): GBP 0.70 each;
G544/7 (Geneva): GBP 1.50 each;
V466/9 (Vienna): GBP 1.30 each.

No prices for the sheetlet; I normally enter them as a multiple of the single stamp price, just to have an idea.

Do you collect UN stamps, or monkey stamps? I collect the latter. Hope this helps, Cobie
