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.

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