United States Stamped Envelopes, Wrappers, and Letter Sheets

The purpose of this site is to provide identification tools for U.S. postal stationery.
The site originally developed by V.F. Thomas, with subsequent edits and additions made by Mark Dubin.

The purpose of each web page linked to below is to enable you to identify the Scott catalog number of the indicium of a United States stamped envelope, wrapper, or letter sheet of the value indicated. Note: The "design number" shown in the Scott catalog and on the pages for each denomination refers to the stamp "design" pictures. The "Scott #" or "Scott #s" shown in the text associated with the design numbers refer to particular instances that use that design.

NOTE: AS OF OCTOBER 1, 2019 AN UPDATE IS IN PROGRESS. WHEN COMPLETED THIS NOTE WILL BE DELETED.

If the envelope, wrapper, or letter sheet that you are trying to identify has been surcharged (or sidecharged), select the key below that represents the original denomination.
