Understanding the World State (Example)

Why the version for CashInLockBox is not 1 for the first transaction and 2 for the second transaction?

    @STBoo. Hello great question. The counter starts at Zero because the state has no changes. The counter starts at the first changed state. The section in the text in Chapter 6 ,The Ledger a Close Look , describes this in details. You are making great progress!

    @Bobbijn thanks for your reply. The counter for the version starts from Zero, however, in the course material, the version for CashInLockBox is still remains as 0 after the first transaction. The version for CashInLockBox in the course material as below

    First transaction -> version 0
    Second transaction -> version 1
    Third transaction -> version 3
    Fourth transaction -> version 4

    If the above were correct, appreciated if you can explain how the version change from 1 to 3 from second transaction to third transaction?
