You are quite right to assign the 5 centimes 1854 and the 10 centimes 1870 to the Brussels mint, even though they carry the caduceus mint mark of the Utrecht mint and the sword mark of the Utrecht mint master H.A. van den Wall Bake. Coins of the same type dated 1855 and 1860 were struck in Paris, with signs Anchor and Hand, like coins dated 1865, with signs anchor and bee.

I had a variety of the 2 centimes 1854 in my collection with the T in BARTH missing. This was probably caused by a dirty die.
