GDR Normal Series 1953-1990 (Later Plates from 1976 on)

Later plates from 1976

Since 1976 plates for cars had the standard format 450 x 90 mm. Rear plates for trucks were 310 x 170 mm and for motorcycles 230 x 130 mm. The three letter code has been introduced in 1974 in the most districts because they've run out of combinations. Most times the number was made from self-adhesive black foil and the base plate made of iron sheet, but there are also several other styles known. Some examples from my collection follow:

Car plates:
 

 
O = District of Suhl
red seal since 1987 in use

 
I = District of East-Berlin

brown seal 1980 - 86 in use
