1978 blue/white "AAA 000" base:  This base was used just before the graphic lake base and was a plain design like previous issues.  Plate number blocks ran from "AAA" through "CGZ" with the "CEN" and up blocks using the thinner dies found on the graphic lake base.

 

 

Lake graphic:  The lake graphic began in 1978 and has been modified periodically over the years.  The following is a summary of the differences in the modifications.

1978 base:  Without "EXPLORE", light colored background, without state outline plate number separator, "AAA 000" plate number format starting at the "CHA" block.

 

1982 base:  Without "EXPLORE", light colored background, but with a state outline plate number separator.  Continued the "AAA 000" plate number format, but started at the "LAA" block.

1989 (blue/reflective multicolored) vg $3.00 "PFB 239" (10007)

 

 

1987 base:  This base began the "EXPLORE" caption in the top left of the plate, had a darker blue background, "10,000 lakes" is on a blue bar across the bottom of the plate, solid lake shore, with state outline plate number separator, and "000 AAA" plate number format starting at the "AAA" block.  This base replaced the previous "lake" bases.

1993 (blue/reflective multicolored) natural m $5.00 "692 HSD" (10613)

 

 

1993 base:  This base continues the "EXPLORE", "000 AAA" plate number format, state outline plate number separator, and darker blue background.  The bottom of the plate, where the "10,000 lakes" slogan is, now fades white to blue bottom, as well as a fading lake shore above.

1995 (blue/reflective multicolored) natural vg $3.00 "787 KHJ" (10021)

1995 (blue/reflective multicolored) vg $3.00 "069 KXU" (10027)

1997 base:  Same as 1993 base, but switch to "AAA 000" plate number format.  Plates are now made with aluminum.

1999 (blue/reflective multicolored) natural vg $3.00 "BKS 138" (10046)

1999 (blue/reflective multicolored) natural vg $3.00 "BNK 558" (10071)

2000 (approximately) base:  Continues the also a "AAA 000" plate number format, but with very little blue fade at the bottom of the plate.  The blue is slightly darker than on the previous issue.

2005 (blue/reflective multicolored) natural vg $3.00 "NRU697" (10259)

 

 

2008 flat base:  The state converted to the flat style plate and switched to the "000 AAA" plate number format.  The state map is still used as a separator, also flat, and the state name and slogan were converted to a different font style.  Over-the-counter sales began at the "AAA" block and mail order sales began at the "BAA" block.  When over-the-counter sales reached "AZZ", the state skipped over the "Bxx" mail order block and continued on at "CAA".

2009 (black/reflective multicolored) natural vg $3.00 "087 ADV" (10185)

2010 (black/reflective multicolored) natural vg $3.00 "356 CKT" (10263)

 

 

 

2010 flat ".com" base:  Continuing the flat style, the ".com" was added following the state name to promote tourism in the state.  The trees to the right were squished to make room for the added lettering.  Over-the-counter sales picked up where the previous base left off in the "Cxx" block.  Mail order sales picked up where the previous base left off in the "Bxx" block.  Therefore, plates can be found without the ".com" in the "Cxx" block and with the ".com" in the "Bxx" block.
