Passenger plates on the "Map" base.
The State Police wanted the two-plate registration back for easier vehicle identification. To determine which cars should
have two plates on them, the DMV made a slight change in the design. A "Map" logo was put at the top left, this
required the flip-flop of the wording to make it fit. Thus any car with a "Map" logo plate must display both plates
otherwise a Trooper may think you are mis-using the other plate. This caused a scramble for some people to find front plate
brackets! The "Map" series started in July 1987 with the 100-EVY series.
Above: "F" series plates ran thru 1989.
Above: "H"series was issued in 1991.
