So maybe I have missed something, by why was the 454 cancelled/fore fitted in the first place?

454 had been registered to a car since 1955. Registered owner had never had the chance to acquire the Rights to the number. The car had been on "restricted rights" ie plate can remain on car whilst in same ownership and should it be unregistered for a period it wouldn't lose the number. He had to relinquish it, put it back in the Govt system so to speak and then obtain the Rights to the plate publicly at a market rate.
