I am coming across a few UN stamps, see below
I guess they are like foriegn stamps, of which I have boatloads I inheirited, but my dad kept them all with the US stuff. Nonetheless, where do I look them up. None of the websites seem to have numbers for them, Sets maybe but individuals, not so much

United Nations stamps are exactly what they sound like: stamps issued by the United Nations in New York City, Vienna, or Geneva. They can only be used by the public if mailed at the UN offices in those cities.

Same place you would any other stamp, a catalog. Your example is Scott NY 377, Michel NY 400 (other catalogs also list them).

This was part of a large series featuring the flags of the UN member states. UN stamps were popular with collectors for a time, but these days are a drug on the market. Lots of attractive designs, though.
