A-12 Serial Numbers

Not to change the topic on the thread "Cammo Dudes New Ride," So I'll start a new one on the A-12's serial numbers. When I was looking up the locations of the surviving A-12s. Wikipedia popped up. I don't believe everything I read on Wikipedia, but mostly it is accurate. My question mainly to Peter Merlin is why do the serial numbers jump from 60-6933 to 60-6937? Where these A-12s cancelled or classified???
