I entered a US application number for a patent search, but ended up with a different issue number from PAIR. Why?

When a patent undergoes revocation, multiple updates or publications in application, it may end up with different issue numbers.

That being said, we appreciate that you will provide us with the application number. We will look into that. When it appears to be an error in Patentcloud, we will correct it shortly after.
