Unexpected value for certificate serial number

We require certificates for incoming requests.  In a policy, I have been logging the serial number from the certificate attached to a request. The serial number in the log does not match what I see if I open the certificate directly on my laptop.  The serial number being logged is ${request.ssl.clientCertificate.serial}.  I tried converting to/from hex, but that does not make the two values jibe.

 

Similarly, if I import a certificate using Manage Private Keys, the serial number displays a different value than if I open the certificate outside Policy Manager.

 

Is policy manager or gateway changing the value it displays for serial number?  I would expect the log to contain the same serial number I see when I open the certificate outside Policy Manager.
