I’d have to agree with those that said it was misfiled. The teeth must be the same height and when set properly and it is held level and plumb you should be able to lay a washer or other item on the teeth without it falling off. When I had my sharpening shop I kept a washer hanging on the wall next to my filer and checked every saw that I sharpened. If you find a few teeth that are off near the handle it is where one starts filing and may have had to make an adjustment before filing the real cutting area. To correct your saw one would need to retooth it, cut new teeth, sharpen and reset it.
