Collectors of Great Britain will want to scrutinize the postage, Machin head, and booklets listings. An exhaustive review of these sections resulted in more than 9,300 value changes. One bright spot is an increase in values for used commemorative stamps issued from early 2001 through 2016, an acknowledgment that demand is on the rise and dealer stocks are not plentiful.
Values for booklet panes and complete booklets have been thoroughly reviewed and updated to reflect current market conditions. For selected modern booklets (prestige booklets, in particular), values now reflect the market values for the key pane or stamp found only in the booklet. An expanded editorial note at the beginning of the booklets section provides more detail.

Select editorial enhancements for Vol. 3B:
Heligoland: Illustrations have been added for the three types found on the 1867-68 (Scott 1-4), 1869-71 (5-6), 1873 (7-12), 1874 (13), and 1875 (14-19) Queen Victoria stamps. On type I, the curl below the chignon is rounded; on type II the curl resembles an upside-down question mark; and on type III the curl is hooked.

India: A small number of color varieties were added to classic-period listings. New Scott 15c is a yellow variety of the 1855 2-anna buff Diadem with Maltese Crosses. An orange variety of the 1865 2a brownish orange Diadem with Maltese Crosses enters the 2019 catalog as Scott 23c.
Italy: New enlarged images have been added for Italy Scott 93, 111, and 123 to make it easier for collectors to determine the correct Scott number for the original 1906 15-centesimo slate Victor Emmanuel III stamp (93) and the redrawn (111) and re-engraved (123) versions of this denomination.
Italy - Trieste: Several new images were added to the listings of Trieste Zone A in Vol. 3B of the 2018 Scott Standard catalog.

More than 30 new images have been added to Vol. 3B of the 2019 Scott Standard catalog.
