Pattern Codes are a very small subset of Codes

Mr. Tuna is fundamentally correct.

A five digit lift-and-press code can be any of 100,000 equally-likely values.

A five digit pattern swipe probably comes in one of several dozen variations, with a thin tail of about a few hundred more. The practical address space is tiny. E.g. 9, 1, 3, 7, 6 is probably almost impossible as a swipe code. 1, 4, 7, 5, 3 is probably a significant fraction of them.
