 +Johann Nepomuk Hofzinser had an effect "Drei ist Eins" ("​Three is One"), which was mentioned in passing without details in Ottokar Fischer'​s book //​[[https://​askalexander.org/​display/​15020/​J+N+Hofzinser+Kartenkunste/​228|J. N. Hofzinser Kartenkünste]]//,​ 1910, p. 215. The whole effect was finally published by Magic Christian in his //​[[https://​askalexander.org/​display/​7924/​Johann+Nepomuk+Hofzinser+1806+1875+Non+Plus+Ultra/​192|J. N. Hofzinser: Non Plus Ultra, Vol. II, ]]//, 2004, p. 192. In this effect, a chosen card is placed aside. Then three unknown cards are taken from the deck. One by one they are shown to be duplicates of the selection. Then all three are placed on top of the deck. The chosen card is turned over and is seen to consist not of one, but three indifferent cards. On top of the deck, the selection is found. While this effect has the elements of an asymmetric transposition,​ this aspect is not clearly worked out as the three cards are never shown at the beginning.
