Macy’s may be looking for a new copy editor after it belatedly discovered an expensive typo in a catalog mailed to customers across the United States last month.

The department store mistakenly offered a $1,500 14-karat gold and sterling silver necklace with diamond accents for $47 – instead of the intended sale price of $479.

After discovering the $432 error, Macy’s cancelled orders for the necklace, but not before an undisclosed number of eagle-eyed bargain hunters swooped on the deal.
