Coarse Universe data doesn't always match History data

Hey everyone,
I recently noticed that the data passed into CoarseSelectionFunction doesn't always exactly match the data returned by the History function. As far as I have seen, most of the time the data matches. However, I have attached a simple project which illustrates one example of a mismatch. The Console output is what I used to show the mismatch; sorry for the flatline backtest results. Does anyone know why this mismatch might be occurring? What is the data source for CoarseSelectionFunction versus the data source for History?

The daily data that is piped through the coarse selection function is the unadjusted, raw price. By default, we send the dividend and split adjusted prices into your algorithm. This is the source of the discrepancy you're seeing.
