Abstract: There is a theorem that two Bessel functions and can have no common positive zeros if is an integer and where m is an integer, but this does not preclude the possibility that for unrestricted real positive and not differing by an integer, the two functions and can have common zeros. An example is found where two such functions have two positive zeros in common.
