1977 (black/reflective white) Union County m $2.00 "88 CZ6672" (12592)

 

 

 

"79" base:  The 1979 base was produced in two types: embossed (raised plate numbers) and debossed (lowered plate numbers).

 

 

"86" base:  This base began in 1985 ("86" embossed expiration) and was renewed yearly until replaced by the graphic farm scene base in 1996.  The county of issue is embossed at the bottom of the plate.  The yearly sticker includes the county number from the old county coding system used through 1978 (see "Iowa county codes" page) and needs to match the county indicated on the plate.  The truck type differs from the passenger only with the plate number format.  While the passenger uses a "AAA 000" format, the truck type uses a "AA 0000" format.

1996 farm scene graphic:  This design began in 1996 ("97" expiration sticker) and features the popular farm scene with barns and silos superimposed over a white city skyline.  The truck type differs from the passenger only with the plate number format.  While the passenger uses a "000 AAA" format, the truck type uses a "0000 AA" format.

When this design first started, the plate number was embossed and the county name appeared on a sticker placed at the bottom of the plate (type I).  Later, the plate number was still embossed, but the county name was screened at the bottom of the plate (type II).  In 2001 ("2002" expiration sticker), the state began producing the plates in flat format.  At some point, the flat plates went from having an indent around the perimeter of the plate (type III) to a completely flat plate using a lighter, thinner aluminum (type IV).  On all types, the yearly stickers midway through the "2005" expiration include the county number from the old county coding system used through 1978 (see "Iowa county codes" page) and needs to match the county indicated on the plate.  The new format (beginning midway through the "2005" stickers) has the plate number, month/year of expiration, and (an unexplainable) "01".  For example, plate number "0000 AA" expiring in, say, August 2005 would read "0000AA08200501" all in one line.  This format sticker continues to the current.
