The 1912 plates had 2 styles of date.

One with a slanted "1", and one with a square "1".

Plates #10063 and #18598 have the square "1", so it looks like

there is a range of plates including those two numbers.

The plates from 10000 to 19999 were shorter than the standard 5-digit plates.

Even if the numeral "1" was in the final 4 digits, the plate size did not change, but the spacing of digits was different.
