A special thanks to Tom Lindner, Dallas Doyle, Pierre Delacote and Ron Garay for providing many of the plates pictured.

After 1935, the date was switched to stacked numerals in order to provide more space for the regsitration numbers, while Tacey's straight dies were abandoned in favour of the slanted dies, which would be used continuosly for the next 18 years (1936-54).
