If we go into this knowing that there has to be some type of error, I might assume that "60" should be spelled out.

 

Two possible reasons:

Some people think that you should use the number and not the numeral when it is one word: "sixty".

Some people think that you should use the number and not the numeral when it is an 'estimated' time.  Is 60 years ago an estimate?
