?? UNIDENTIFIED PLATES ??
I don't know what these are.
Can anyone help ?
NUMBER MARKERS ?
These little "plates" are slightly smaller than motorcycle plates, but made with NJ plate colors.
The similarity of the numbers suggests that they may have been used for markers of some sort.
Locker numbers ? Apartment numbers ? Mailbox numbers ? Who knows !
The 1910 and 1911 plates appear to be homemade replacements - and apparently they once had seals.
This "1919 plate" is painted on the back of a 1911 porcelain. Probably another homemade replacement plate.
This appears to be white on orange - same colors as a 1926 passenger plate, but the N.J.-1926 is missing from the top.
LICENSED BY NEW JERSEY
These are smaller than a passenger plate, but bigger than a motorcycle plate. And they have a strange 8-hole pattern.
"Licensed" for what ? And by whom ? Anybody know ?
PLATE SIGNS ?
These 2 pictures of signs that look like plates come from Ed Natale.
"RESERVED" was clearly made with NJ motorcycle dies on a NJ plate blank, but it has 2 extra holes.
Anybody else have any like this ?
KEEP OUT is not a NJ plate (dies don't match, but it's really close). I figured I'd include it here anyway.
This one, with the same 6-hole pattern and motorcycle dies as the one above left, was seen on eBay.
This one is from the collection of Tiger Joe ... orange on black like 1936 passenger plates, but smaller.
It has the "octagon" New Jersey dies, but is it a NJ plate ? If not, then what is it ??
What are these ? Vanities ?
Why are they so close together - and why the BGOO0A pattern ?
All seen and photographed on the road in & around Bergen County in the mid 2000's.
This is not a regular passenger as NJ has never used leading zeroes.
