Reverse(s): The "Four Points" ('9a') (overprinted as shown);
Poison In The Cup ('1a') (overprinted on the same style back)

NOTE: Although this card bears an 1883 copyright date, it's likely that the actual Arbuckle Bros. usage is from sometime later, as the Arbuckle company apparently just overprinted the backs of existing supplies of the cards. In fact, since one of the known cards with this design bears the "Poison In The Cup!" affidavit, that one would clearly have to have been issued in 1888 or later.
