I like it also, especially because the Victoria museum was able to identify Mr. Cade. TFS

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Yes a nice one. The museum seems to have all the information leaving nothing more to say!

As the business was over by 1852 it would seem CADE took up the remainder of the issue and counter-marked them in 1856.
