We come across plenty of specimens placed in newspapers – this one is from 1912! – Not all of them, like this one, are secured with tape. But, when they do have tape, we have to cut through the tape with either a knife (pictured) or a scalpel.

Once the specimen has been cut free; we then transfer the specimen to a new sheet.

Along with the specimen, we transfer all identifiable information to the new sheet.

The finished product, the specimen on its new sheet, secured with tape, and with the same information from its previous (newspaper) sheet.
