Transactions not appearing correctly

It appears that each transaction in a register is associated with a
currency. For example:




In one of my accounts some of the transactions are associated with the
incorrect currency.  This appears to be stored in the XML but transparent to
the GnuCash user.
*(1) How can I see the currency in a register?
(2) How can I change the currency in a register?*

Many thanks,
