It is not an error, it is simply a poorly centered stamp.

Be aware that for 19th century stamps and even much later, perforation technology was not like it is with today's stamps. It's not like they could take the time to do a perfect job every time. They did inspect printed sheets, but if (at least) the denomination was clear, it was passed on for sale.

Here's two Iranian/Persian stamps from 1889. They were printed in Paris, not some backwater with primitive tech for the era.

The left one is a typical size and has typical design centering; overall it's a little smaller than current US definitives. But the right stamp is tiny with the design cut in. Note that it wasn't considered so bad that it couldn't be sold - it was indeed used.
