What's New:  December 2003

Here is the material that was added or modified for this update:

  1. Catalog Abbreviations
    BA = British Commonwealth Revenues by John Barefoot (J. Barefoot Ltd., York, U.K.) 7th Ed. - 2002

  2. List of Stamps Arranged by Country  
    New comment for Liberia:  Scott does not list any Liberian stamps issued after August 1999 because of the non-existence of a postal service in that country after that date.

  3. Appendix II: Labels, Seals, Advertising Stamps, Etc.
