There are no known plate number examples of the 1 or 2 inverts.  This is the only example this author has seen of a 1 or 2 Pan American invert with marginal markings of any sort:

Scott 294a, 1 error with inverted center, top margin single showing part of Bureau imprint and printer's initials

 

Scott 296a, 4 error with inverted center, bottom frame plate number 1145.  Image courtesy of Wallace Cleland.

After the 1 and 2 inverts were discovered, there were rumors that the 4 invert was in public hands.  Officials responded by intentionally printing a few more sheets of the 4 inverts.  It turns out the intentional misprints were the only examples.  This plate number single and a bottom plate strip of 4 are known.

 

Scott 296aSE, 4 error with inverted center, Specimen overprint at left, bottom frame plate number 1145.  Believed to be unique.
