Even the first digit in 67 would be improper representing a value in base-six.
As we all know, when representing values in any base n, the value n appears as "10".
The numeral six ("6") shouldn't appear in any base-six value, just as the numeral eight ("8") doesn't appear in any octal representation, the numeral used for ten ("A"?) doesn't show in any decimal value, and the numeral that might be used for sixteen ("H"?) won't show in any hexadecimal value.
[End of pedantic rant/reminder.]
I (probably, all too predictably) remind folks at two oft-obsessed-over passages that:
4010 = 2816, and
5010 = 3216
(I'm 55, which I might choose to represent as either 3716, or 678.)
