There is a French edict of July 25th, 1831 that regulate that letters from suspect neighbouring countries in the east, have to be disinfected due to the cholera. Letters disinfected in Germany are usually perforated with pinholes done by a rastel or an awl while letters disinfected in France are usually slitted with a chisel or blade.
