Section 6 says:

   RC2Version ::= INTEGER -- 1-1024

   RC2 in CBC mode has two parameters: an 8-byte initialization vector
   (IV) and a version number in the range 1-1024 which specifies in a
   roundabout manner the number of effective key bits to be used for
   the RC2 encryption/decryption.

It should say:

   RC2Version ::= INTEGER -- 0-1024

   RC2 in CBC mode has two parameters: an 8-byte initialization vector
   (IV) and a version number in the range 0-1024 which specifies in a
   roundabout manner the number of effective key bits to be used for
   the RC2 encryption/decryption.
