Duplicate device IDs and Serial Numbers

We're seeing duplicate devices returned from Clover's Devices endpoint. Can two Clover devices have the same device id and same serial number? Or is there a bug in the endpoint? Here's a snippet of what we're seeing:
 {
            "href": "https://www.clover.com/v3/merchants/V3S78QR86009T/devices/502ca671-dbb4-444c-8dc0-98a13fce9793",
            "id": "502ca671-dbb4-444c-8dc0-98a13fce9793",
            "model": "CloverGo-iPad 4th gen",
            "merchant": {
                "id": "V3S78QR86009T"
            },
            "serial": "D0EF41F68CE7440D98298BA27668E1AA",
            "buildType": "USER",
            "deviceTypeName": "CLOVER_GO"
        },
        {
            "href": "https://www.clover.com/v3/merchants/V3S78QR86009T/devices/502ca671-dbb4-444c-8dc0-98a13fce9793",
            "id": "502ca671-dbb4-444c-8dc0-98a13fce9793",
            "model": "CloverGo-iPad 4th gen",
            "merchant": {
                "id": "V3S78QR86009T"
            },
            "serial": "D0EF41F68CE7440D98298BA27668E1AA",
            "buildType": "USER",
            "deviceTypeName": "CLOVER_GO"
        }
    ],
    "href": "http://api.clover.com/v3/merchants/V3S78QR86009T/devices"
}	
Thanks in advance.

The device uuid is a unique key, there is presumably a bug in the code/query/schema.

@Dan, please clarify. Are you saying there is a bug in Clover's API? If so, will you file a ticket? Because otherwise, if you're saying the bug is on our side, then we can rule that out, because these results are copied from a Postman request to get the Merchant's devices.

Probably a bug in Clover's API, but its hard to know for sure without seeing the exact request.
