DMM was the final suffix seen in the sequentially issued plates in the 00-DLA00 format.

DU series Used Car Dealer plates were issued starting in late 2015 in both forward and reversed formats.
This is the first time we have seen the DU series issued.

Looks like the sequential series started up at DUL (after the DMM suffix was issued).

By the end of 2020, there was no fixed sequence of letter codes for Used Car Dealer plates.
It is possible that at this point the DAA-DKZ prefixes started being used.



DAA-DKZ PREFIXES
As of late 2020(?) plates in the DAA-DKZ series are now being produced as USED CAR DLR plates.
These are out of sequence ... DAA through DKZ had previously been used for NEW CAR DLR plates ever since NEW and USED were split in 1960.

There is no general replacement of older plates - any dealer plate issued since 1992 can still be on the road or remade on this base.
It is unknown why some of these plates have a single-digit car number and some use the leading zero (e.g. '9' and '09').

Courtesy dealer plates now have the car number in the upper right, like courtesy passenger plates.

ERROR
This plate has a font problem ... and a prefix problem ... and it's just plain wrong.
First, the DFQ prefix is out of range for used car dealers.
Second, the font on the DFQ and the car number "01" is wrong - and ugly.
Third, the spacing on the "33" is incorrect.

I am hoping that this is an error plate, or a test plate that somehow got out into circulation, or a pure fake,
because if New Jersey's plate font starts looking like this for real, I would be very disappointed.

I photographed this in January 2019. So far, I have not seen any others like it.
