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.

It was re-issued in 1957 on the blue base, but had faded out and was replaced on the "Map" base above.
It has since been re-issued again on the new 2000 Gradient base.
