This stamp has no word "Nippon" on it but has an ink stamp with the word "Japan" and the date 1962.
If it is an overprint then where can I find examples of others like mine?
Is it an error of omission?
I have attached two other images from: Pinterest.com and Stampworld for comparison.

The 50y dark brown without NIPPON was issued in 1952. Not an error.

I agree, your stamp is not an error. Looking at the Scott catalog, it appears that "Nippon" was not added to Japanese stamps until 1966. The black ink is a standard cancel, not an overprint. The other two stamps are from a later series.

For what it's worth, the first two Japanese characters read "Ni" and "Hon" meaning Nihon or Nippon. So it's on the stamp in Japanese, just not in English.
