Alex painted a letter on each of nine cans and set them on a fence rail.
There was one duplicate letter.
Using them a target practice, he shot the cans in the following order: 5 6 3 4 2 9 1 8 7.
Amazingly, before and after each shot, the letters on the cans still on the fence spelled an English word.

The initial was was ... ?
