  Vehicle registration plate Information
The plate has a serial number on it which is the same on all plates attached to the vehicle, the purpose of which is to identify the vehicle uniquely from others on roads, usually within the same country.
License plates have been around almost as long as automobiles, appearing in the earliest period of the transition from the horse, 1890 to 1910.
The current plates are of the 1992 standard, which consist of the one-character provincial abbreviation, a letter of the Latin alphabet corresponding to a certain city in the province, and five numbers or letters of the alphabet (e.g.

In the United States and Canada, license plates are issued by an agency of the state or provincial government (or its equivalent, for example, the District of Columbia).
In the District of Columbia, the license plate is validated with a windshield sticker that indicates the expiration date, the license plate number, the year and make of vehicle, and part of the vehicle identification number, thereby allowing easier detection of fraudulent use.
This is an exception to the general rule in the US that license plates are issued by the state, and not the federal, government.

 History of US and Canadian license plates - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The first license plates were made out of iron and porcelain, painted on the front in usually two different colors--one for the background and one for the lettering.
Each year, citizens were usually required to obtain a new license plate from the state government, which would have a different color scheme than the previous year, making it easier for police to identify whether or not citizens were current with their vehicle registration.
Minnesota introduced some license plates during this period with three different years embossed into the plate, so that the plates were valid for three consecutive years (e.g., 1918, 1919, and 1920).

 Frequently Asked Questions about License Plate Collecting   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
There were early registration plates in use on carriages and wagons in the US (as far back as the early 1800's), but I don't know if you could actually call these "license plates", per se.
Plates in New York from 1901 through 1909 were owner-provided plates, usually referred to by plate collectors as "pre-states", because they were "pre-state issue".
Plates from the Sovereign Military Order of Malta are also extremely hard to find, but SMOM is sort of a marginal jurisdiction, that few collectors will actually attempt to add to their foreign set.

 Single Payer Health Care System
The Canadian system is a publicly funded insurance program where costs are controlled and both hospitals and doctors are private.
Canadian doctors make about one third less that American doctors and yet their satisfaction level is high because they have more time to practice medicine because paper work is minimized.
The economics certainly indicate that the Canadian approach should be observed and considered as a model for the U.S. The U.S. spends about $1000 per year per person more than does Canada.

 1942 - 1945 War Effort Restamped License Plate Page
The duplicate plates saved by the state (the mates to the ones mailed) were often: flattened and restamped with a new number or saved for another year (or more) and only the date was restamped.
The restruck or overstamped plate was sent to the registered owner of that license plate in subsequent years.
