11. Error of color (ink): There are a lot of color varieties but very few that are recognized as errors as a result of having the wrong color of ink applied. They range from quite scarce, such as the 1893 4¢ Columbian ultramarine error of color, to the fairly common maroon 25¢ Frederick Douglass of 1967. Values also vary widely.


Type 11: These U.N. stamps (Scott C3a) are printed in different colors. The green-blue, so-called "Prussian blue" stamp on left is a color error.


Type 11: 5¢ Scott 467 block of 12 carmine error, double error from foreign entry. "Double error" means there are two 5¢ stamps in the block of 12.
