    Fr. 1291 25¢ Third Issue Inverted Back Surcharge PCGS Extremely Fine 40PPQ.
    Only two types of Red Back Inverts are known: this Fessenden and a Fr. 1357 Justice. That Justice invert is relatively common, with over a dozen pieces known. When we sold Tom O'Mara's Red Back Fessenden, we commented that it was unique. Milt had seven Green Back Fessenden Inverts, but in over 30 years of searching was never able to locate a Red Back. Clearly, another has turned up; but if there is a third, we have no idea of its whereabouts.
