Clipped - A term which is typically used to describe the perforations of a stamp. If a stamp has clipped perforations, it means that they have been damaged in some way. This type of damage often occurs when the stamp has been stuck to an envelope and cut out at at a later date to be soaked. This is due to careless cutting of the surrounding paper, which results in the edge of the stamp becoming clipped.
