Polygons in Shapefile not Appearing In Desktop, but exist???

I've encountered an odd error with ArcGIS Desktop 10.2.  I have a shapefile (parcel data) with multiple polygons.  When I am viewing the parcels at a smaller scale, I can see all the polygons in desktop.  When viewing the polygons at a larger scale, some of them disappear. 

 

They are symbolized the same, and I do not have the symbology set to appear differently at different scales.  The settings are basically set to default settings.  I can see the polygon exists in the attribute table, and can select the polygon in the attribute table, but can not select it in the map view.

 

I've solved the problem by exporting another shapefile, and now everything is working normally, where I can view them at all scales, and can select them in the map view.  I am just wondering if anyone has ever experienced such an issue where you would have "phantom" polygons
