Scouts on Stamps of the World Catalog [1900-1985]

Collectors face the challenge of separating the legitimate postal issues from the illegal, exploitive and/or non-postal offerings.  SOSSI has attempted to categorize the various stamp issues according to the IFSCO's (International Federation of Scout and Guide Stamp Collecting Organizations) Classifications of Boy Scout & Girl Scout new postage stamps and postal stationery issues.  We use information from UPU's World Association for the Development of Philately (WADP) Numbering System - (WNS) and catalogues such as Scotts and Michel.  It is ultimately the responsibility of the collector to decide what to add to their collection.

Visit XX World Jamboree Stamp Issues for complete listing of stamps issued commemorating this event.
