Additional Details:
Perforating Postage Stamps - The stamps are printed in sheets of 400, and after being gummed by machinery, are sent to perforating machines - appliances armed with batteries of countless rapidly moving needles which perforate the rows of tiny holes that separate the stamps and permit the sheets to be subdivided at will.
