COURTESY 1926-1938 These plates are issued to government officials or "important people".
Courtesy plates started using county prefixes in 1926 - the same time as passenger plates did.
Thanks to fellow NJ collector Ron Hepkin for pictures of courtesy plates from his collection !

Starting in 1926, courtesy plates had a stacked NJ on the left and the year stacked on the right.
They used a prefix letter denoting the county, and numbers from 1 to 999.
The small number sometimes following the dash is a "car number" - indicating more than one car with the same number.

COUNTY CODES
A = Atlantic F = Cape May K = Middlesex ON [Q] = Ocean U = Union
B = Bergen H = Hudson L = Mercer P = Passaic V = Morris
C = Camden I = Somerset M = Monmouth R = Sussex W = Warren
E = Essex J = Hunterdon N = Burlington S = Salem Y = Cumberland
Z = Gloucester
1926-1928
From 1926 to 1928, the legend OFFICIAL was at the top of the plate.
