FINE. THE ONLY RECORDED UNUSED BLOCK CONTAINING ONE OF THE DOUBLE TRANSFER, ONE INVERTED, POSITIONS ON PLATE ONE EARLY. AN IMPORTANT ONE-CENT 1851 ISSUE MULTIPLE IN A REMARKABLE STATE OF PRESERVATION.

The three inverted transfers occurred during the making of Plate 1 Early. Positions 71L, 81L and 91L were entered from the Type II design 3-relief transfer roll in the spaces where the first three entries had been made and erased (but not fully erased). The three entries that were erased were made in the upper left corner of the plate (which would produce 10R, 20R and 30R). The plate was turned 180 degrees before starting fresh entries from the transfer roll. When Toppan Carpenter re-worked the worn plate, many of the subjects were re-entered, and all but one were recut at top and/or bottom, creating Scott 9, Type IV, from what we call Plate 1 Late (the same piece of steel in its modified state). Positions 71L and 81L were re-entered, thus becoming triple transfer (one inverted) positions, but 91L was not re-entered.

Very few unused or original-gum blocks from Plate 1 Early are known. This is the only recorded block with one of the inverted transfer positions (71/81/91L).
