CONTRACTOR EQUIPMENT IN TRANSIT 1994-
Equipment in Transit plates are issued to construction companies for vehicles used mostly on construction sites, although any vehicle with these plates can drive on regular roads.
They are issued in groups of 5 - each plate has a small suffix (vehicle) number.
NJ MAPS ON EQUIPMENT PLATES
EQUIPMENT plates are the only ones ever to use TWO of the little NJ map separators on the same plate.
The die for the NJ map changed around 1992 - it became smaller and less precise.
As a result of having different map dies, some EQUIPMENT plates have mixed map dies - one of each map on the same plate.
Several of the 1992-base plates below have mixed maps.

2017First plate in the GL series
Because this is the only one of these I've ever seen, I thought I'd put it by itself.
Below is a picture of a remake of CP-78-4, a number first issued in 1974.
The remake is on a graphic base (not sure which one).
I included a picture of it on the tractor.
(I'll try to get a better picture...)
