ATA Checklists - Available to ATA Members Only
(to join the ATA, click here) Updated January 2, 2017
ATA’s new checklist dATAbase service was launched in May 2014. For information about the dATAbase, see this press release.
ATA is the world's leading supplier of topical stamp checklists. Checklists are one of our best member services. The ATA is now making its checklists available to members from a new dATAbase containing almost 400,000 stamps and 658,489 topical listings.
New: The March 2017 checklist updates, including the February Linn's new issue listings, contain more than 595 added items. Check out your favorite topics to see how much they've grown! If you don't find your topic listed, ATA can customize a checklist for you. Contact the ATA Office, firstname.lastname@example.org, for information.
Checklists marked with an asterisk(*) in the ATA listings contain Beyond the Catalogue (BTC) items: Basic types of common philatelic items issued by governments but not usually listed in Scott Standard Postage Stamp Catalogue, e.g., booklet covers, meter stamps, postal cards, postal stationery, postmarks. These items can add special meaning to a collection or an exhibit--and often their existence is unknown to a collector. ATA checklists are one of the few sources of this type of information.
Costs for the checklists are:
Emailed (Excel file, or .pdf file if requested): A penny per listing. A checklist with 195 stamp listings costs $1.95.
Mini-topics (checklists with less than 50 items) cost 50 cents.
Maxi-topics (checklists with more than 5,000 items) cost $50.
Mailed: Add five cents per page for printing (~50 items per page), plus actual postage to mail. Contact ATA Office for assistance.
Checklist Updates: ATA members purchase a checklist from the new dATAbase (since 1 May 2014) are entitled to free updates once/year as long as ATA membership is maintained.
For all checklist listings, the numbers after the checklist names denote the number of items in the checklist. Generally, if all the stamps in a set are of the same basic design, there is just one item listed; it will contain all the Scott numbers in the set.
When you order checklists, you will find the following checklist information for each item:
