E-100CG (?) - K999-CG

In 1992, the graphic base was introduced with 7 digits, starting at CG10000.   Like MG plates, some of these were stickered.
I have listed them in numerical order (of issue) as the stickers are somewhat inconsistent.

The 7-digit series stopped in the low 20000 series - CG21390 (pictured above) is the highest known.
In 2001, the previous (6-digit) series numbering returned.   This series started where the blue plates left off - somewhere between C100-CG and E100-CG.
