Position 71L1L, triple transfer, one inverted, recut twice at top and once at bottom (only four such recuts on plate), original gum, h.r., large margins all around, rich color and detailed impression showing many lines of the inverted transfer, Extremely Fine, a scarce original-gum example of this desirable position, according to Richard Celler's theory, the three inverted transfers were made from a Type I design 3-relief transfer roll as a sort of trial after the top row entries had been made and the plate was turned around 180 degrees, when another plate ("Plate 0") had to be discarded, the siderographer returned to Plate 1 and erased the three inverted transfers before completing the plate with entries surrounding 3R to 10R -- on Plate 1 Early, Positions 71L and 81L are double transfers, Position 91L was entered a total of three times, so it is a triple transfer, one inverted -- when the plate was reworked in 1852, 71L and 81L were re-entered (but not 91L), making them all triple transfers, one inverted
