Austrian Postage Stamp With a Typo

Star of David Austrian Postage Stamp

The Star of David that Herzl suggested as an emblem for the Zionist Movement appears on an Austrian postage stamp issued in 1985 to mark Herzl's 125 years birthday. The Hebrew caption is written wrongly, and this is the first time I see a typo on a postage stamp. Courtesy of Ronik from Israeli Collect Forum.
