Fake personalized plate, as confirmed by Monegasque authorities. Monaco does not permit
personalized plates. Furthermore, the plate is not the right size and without security markings.
Possibly a remake of an American registration.
Most likely an unofficial replacement plate for a normal series Finnish registration.
Most likely an unofficial plate for a French moped.
Those were unregistered at the time this photo was taken. Seen at an offshore powerboat race.
This is most likely an unofficial replacement plate for a Belgian registration.
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 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 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
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.
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.
Probably an American registration remade on plates with what looks like the same colours as
Norwegian military plates use.
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.
