65. Design errors: Faulty research in designing a stamp can result in an issued stamp that contains an error, an inherent contradiction or misinformation. This can be in the stamp's design, in a backprint or in a marginal inscription. Since all issued stamps will contain the same error, they have no special value.

Type 65: The U.S. 1991 52¢ Hubert Humphrey stamp (Scott 2189) at left was printed with the wrong dates ("1964 to 1968") for Humphrey's term as vice president. The stamp was printed a second time with the correct dates, "1965 to 1969."
