An error in philately generally refers to a defect in the production of a postage stamp: wrong color, perforation failure or lack of it, folds in the paper, etc. Such errors are relatively rare and therefore such stamps with mistakes are costly. However, there is another type of error that is not so rare or expensive. It is the design error. There are errors in spelling, geography, politics, history, etc.
