Bisect - (Stamps) A bisect is a stamp cut in half which has been used to pay the postage at half the face value of the original stamp; each section of the bisect retains half of the original value. Bisects should be collected on the original cover with the postmark or cancellation covering the cut. There are no official bisect stamps from the United States.
