here's my guess on the curious case cable: it was mismarked by accident 
at the factory (e.g. 93 ohm coax, marked as 50 because someone forgot to 
push the button on the marking machine), and dumped in the scrap bin, 
and then sold by someone who bought the surplus and just read the markings.

Or, even sold as a whole spool, likely at a discount, to a 
"knowledgeable buyer" who was willing to take it, mismarkings and all.
