Numbers game

What is the mathematical possibility of me buying blindly two cameras from opposite ends of the world, with years between them, and ending up with cameras with successive serial numbers?

That’s exactly what happened recently…

I bought the Miranda FM No. 708118 from France some years ago. It was a bit rough example, but it came with neat and properly working M built-in-meter prism. Recently I started looking for a better Miranda F body for replacement, and found one for sale in Japan. Imagine my surprise when I compared the serial numbers of the two F’s; the one arrived from Japan was No. 708119, manufactured just after the one I already had!
