I believe Codepage (a summary property which must be set *before* any
other string value), is a string.  Documentation admits it might also be
an integer, but it doesn't matter.  Both foo.SetProperty(PID_CODEPAGE,
'1252') and foo.SetProperty(PID_CODEPAGE, 1252) raise "unknown error 65d".

I believe 0x65d  (1629d)  to be ERROR_DATATYPE_MISMATCH.

I hope this helps.  It's Greek to me now.

Well, I violated the admonition of the Great Satan: "PID_CODEPAGE must
be first." (or words to that effect).  It turns out not to make a
difference.  Revised (conforming) source attached.

I fail to see the bug in this report. As you found out, you need to set the codepage property before setting any of the string properties. This is a requirement imposed by Microsoft, and has nothing to do with Python.
