(Side point: Please don't top-post. The convention on this mailing
list, and most other technical mailing lists, is what's sometimes
called "interleaved style"; you trim the quoted text to what's needed
for context, and put your text underneath what you're referring to.

>>> 1073741877&60
>>> bin(52)

Everything I've written with the triple-angle-bracket marker can be
typed in at the Python prompt, and you'll see exactly what it does. In
this case, you can see that you're absolutely right: 1073741877 has
1101 in those positions, so if you're looking for 1011, it won't

>>> 0b101100

However, 1073741869 would:

>>> 1073741869&60

The way to test would be something like this:

>>> (1073741877 & 0b111100) == 0b101100
>>> (1073741869 & 0b111100) == 0b101100
