Swedish replacement plate. 1985 onwards plate style.
This is an official Swedish replacement plate, with police stamp,
for a German plate from EF = Erfurt. Both front and rear plates looked the same.

Unknown country F 12.jpg (22 kB)
Unknown type. Seen on an old agricultural tractor.
This is most likely not a registration plate at all, but the name plate from a Volvo F12 truck.

Unknown plate type A-322.jpg (14 kB)
Unknown type. Self-adhesive sticker plate. Also seen A-325 and A-326.
These plates were seen on ex-military trucks from East Germany.
Later on they got Norwegian provisional plates. The most likely explanation is that these are
simply catalogue numbers from the auction where the trucks were sold.

One of the ex-military trucks from East Germany of the make Ural with the crest of DDR visible on the doors.

Unknown type, probably fake Hungarian 520 GJE.jpg (21 kB)
Unknown type, probably a fake. The driver of the car said it was a Hungarian temporary plate,
which is not the case. It has the national crest of Hungary and the dealer name on the plate
frame is a well known company in Budapest. But Hungarian plates have the letters before the numerals and don't have the crest.

USA New York normal series replacement plate 2DS X75.jpg (24 kB)
Unknown American series. Front and rear plates looked the same. This is a home made
replacement plate. The driver told me he used these plates to avoid having the real ones stolen.
He claimed this was a New York registration, but to my knowledge it doesn't fit any issued series.

Unknown, but probably remake of a US plate 401 IEP.jpg (21 kB)Unknown, probably remade American close-up 401 IEP.jpg (4 kB)
Probably an American registration remade on plates with what looks like the same colours as Norwegian military plates use.

Netherlands/ USA. Texas registration on a Dutch made plate. 059 ZDK.jpg (24 kB)
Netherlands/ Texas. Trailer with 1975-90 normal series Texas registration on a plate made in
the Netherlands. Probably a Texan who had acquired the trailer in the Netherlands,
where small trailers at the time displayed the same number as the prime mover.
A genuine Texas trailer would have a different format registration and plate size.
