This is the  postage stamp notable for having an error was issued On May 3, 1932.  It is part of a set of seven stamps showing places of interest and landmarks in the Philippines,  at that time a United States territory. It is a postage stamp design error printed in the United States and intended to display an image of Pagsanjan Falls, a tourist attraction in Laguna province in the Philippines. However, the image on the stamp is actually of Vernal Fall in Yosemite National Park, California.

The error came about because the engraver, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, used a photograph of Vernal Fall as the basis for the image on the stamp because the wrong image had been supplied by the post office in Manila. At the time, July 1941, it was estimated that one and a half million copies had been printed even though a recall was considered.  No stamp was issued with a corrected image.

This is the correct image of Pagsanjan Falls:
