What is uncommon with this roud?

It seems the operator did set the bunters in unusual order. Maybe Dutch can comment how often or seldom this “mistake” was made?

Yes, I noticed that by lot 12 The St+ chanced with the lot number.

By lot 26 Polte made the bunter as usual. The reason is unknown by me.

It is known that this was happening by several factories.

Perhaps a new engraver did it his way.
