A P-44a...

So I tried to add a new P-44 note to my Zimbabwe 2nd dollar set and it said the note wasn't eligible / wasn't allowed in the slot. The slot seems set up to allow a P-44a... P-44a. I've never heard of a P-44a. I can't find any reference in any of my research / shopping / looking around to a P-44a or a P-44b, just P-44.

I'm assuming this a / no a thing is the reason why the system / slot is rejecting the note. I'm assuming / hoping this was just a mistake but it's a bit of head scratcher for me as to how it happened if so.

There IS a P-46a and P-46b and a P-48a and a P-48b. Those are the 10,000 and 100,000 dollar notes in the series, with the a and b variants differentiated based on how the digits in the denomination are grouped. The P-44, the $1,000 note in the series, to my knowledge, has no such variation. 

I've seen cases in the past with these sets where the slot just hadn't been populated with scores at all before and cases where the scores where entered for an "a" variant but not a "b" or a normal version but not a star / replacement note version (or vice versa) but I've never had a slot calling for something that didn't / doesn't appear to exist.

Hello, Revenant.

You requested your note with Pick# 44 to be added on Christmas Day. It was approved by an administrator and accepted into your set a few days later. Thank you and let us know when we may assist with the PMG Registry in the future.

I know. Never doubted that it would be resolved really and the issue automatically goes in the queue when the attempt is made to enter it, but it was still somewhat novel event, as I said. :)

When I looked the other day the slot had been set up to allow a P-44 or a P-44a. It looks like the P-44a is gone now so I'm guessing I'm right and there is no a and b variant for that pick number. The P-44a was probably put in there initially by someone who  thought it did have an a and b because the 46 and 48 do, which would make sense. But the fact that those variations exist and just for those two notes is one of the funnier quirks / facts about the series. It's also funny and strange that P-47, right in the middle, wasn't impacted and doesn't have an a or b either, now that I think about it.
