I-Bond technical question (was I screwed?)

I bought some I-Bonds on October 31st, back in 2001 I believe,
the last day that of the 3%+ bonds. I was explicit with the
bank people about why this needed to be filled that day etc.
When the bonds showed up they were dated in November which
pay 2%+. I got bank officials to admit this was bad for me, and
to take the bonds to their bond department and get me re-issues
so I'd have my 3%'ers. These new ones also have November dates
on them... What is the chance that these are 3% bonds? As I
think now, even if the bond department wanted to fix their
mistake, how could they tell the U.S. treasury "Please give us
some of those previous, better I-Bonds. We promised someone we'd
get some."?
