I just got a new start in us stamps again. I got the beautiful DAVO set and realize they do not have the Scott number. I am too new to do without that.From what I have found the Schaubeck series is excellent, but no on has the US vol.1.
everyone seems to be out. Would anyone know a store or individual with the pages. I can order the album.
thank you

The forum's full of collectors who've bought into one system or another, then changed their minds. I've done it myself. Perfection is a chimera. How much do you really need catalogue numbers in a printed album if you're just starting out? For a relative handful of expensive, earlier stamps? Why not give the Davo a go and ask questions here?

Otherwise,

Thanks for the ideas.

I have a sizeable classic collection. A lot is mint. I also like that Schaubeck allows me to put mint and used in same space.There are too many varieties to do just based on the davo pages. plus the collection I bought was in an old minkus and I do not have enough spare time to go deep on the watermarks, perfs and secret marks etc.
I want the Schaubeck for the classics and will use Davo for everything past that as I am more familiar with those stamps.

As Minkus and Scott use different numbering systems, if your collection is currently in an old Minkus album, I don't see how simply having pages with Scott numbers on them will help you, unless you are willing to take the time and properly identify them.

If 1847-1939 is your collecting range, all you need for success is a Scott catalog published anytime in the past 30 years. Should be able to find one for a few bucks; certainly much cheaper than the Schaubek set. A catalog of some kind is kinda basic to the hobby anyway, like tongs/tweezers.

The DAVO album will give you year, denomination, and color/design (or variation), which all you need to find the Scott number in the catalog.

OK, I did buy an older copy of the scott specialist, for the same reason. I wanted it for information not prices.
the schaubek is in my opinion the best book because of the system and extra ra pages.protection and separation by extra blank paging which makes it simpler to keep mint and used together.
Plus, I still work full time and do not have the time to study the variations at the moment. I want the numbers to match, it speeds up the process of moving the stamps over and seeing the variations.
I appreciate everyone's input. I could not find the pages I wanted as they have apparently been out of stock for a year.
A shop referred me back to iHob. The owner, Bob (I am unsure how to spell his last name) was not only helpful, he had just gotten the Vol.1 pages back into stock!!!
As to the value of my collecting, my handful of stamps starts at US 1 and includes mint columbians and Trans Mississipi, so not the average starter. But no way for anyone to know. I'm working on precancels and perhaps pre 1930 aviation. Dead countries and American Indians. I am very into columbian issues.
Again thank you all for your ideas and thoughts.
