Belly numbers higher than vin

Is it common to have a belly number slightly higher than vin?. Both vin and belly are 47 but the rest of the belly number is about 150 more than the vin. Thanks

Yes, it is common. The belly number is put on when the cases are finish machined and assembled, the VIN doesn't go on until the whole bike is built.
