Hello,

There once was a day when US self-adhesive stamps had real perforations, thus allowing easy removal, but none are present now thus making, for me, difficult to remove a single stamp from a pane unless I create a jumbo issue, thus destroying all stamps around the jumbo.

I know many do not collect new US issues, but for those that do or for any dealers, how do you remove a single stamp from a pane without damaging other stamps?

Thanks.

Just bend the sheet a little, that usually does it

This method seems as a good method if I can to use the stamp on an envelope. I'm trying to retain the original backing paper and add the stamp, without parts of surrounding stamps, to my collection.

Use 19 of he 20 stamps for postage, then cut a backing paper margin around the 20th and add it to your collection. If you have the impatience gene as I do, transfer the 19 stamps to a square of baking paper, then use for postage later.

By bending the backing liner out from under every other stamp in every alternating row of a pane and then cutting the liner under the the diecuts of the stamps adjacent to the target stamp(s). The target stamp is then in possession of the liner from under the adjacent stamps. This only works with alternating stamps in a row and alternating rows in the pane. Usually results in 4 stamps with liners from each pane of 20. The others are postage. Without all of the manipulations, it is easier to simply cut the alternating stamps from the pane by snipping well into the adjacent stamps along the diecuts, keeping the diecuts of the target stamp well clear of the cuts and then peeling away the strips of diecuts to clear the backing. Same results: 4 stamps with backing liner from every pane of 20.
