Die-Cut Poster Stamps
While traditional perforated or imperforated poster stamps were
issued in sheets, die-cut poster stamps were printed in sheet form, but the individual stamps were cut from the
sheet with specially shaped knives (dies). Some imperforate poster stamps were also die-cut, but it is difficult
to determine the method of separation, since some imperforate poster stamps were also issued in sheet form and
them separated by scissors, paper cutters, etc.
