PASSENGER - 2005 covered wagon base

Passenger:  Off and on, Nebraska has issued both yearly plates and multiyear plates, the multiyear plates being renewed with metal tabs and, later, stickers.  The last yearly plate was issued for 1965.  In 1966, the state issued its first design that incorporated the state's shape as part of the design, with the southwest corner of the state functioning as the renewal sticker placement.  For each new design, everyone received new plates for all plate classes.  The 1976 bicentennial base introduced staggered monthly renewals and was used until replaced by the plain blue/white design in 1984.  From the 1984 design forward, each design was used for three years like clockwork before being replaced with a new design, the lone exception being the 2005 issue which was used for six years.  Because Nebraska county codes the plates (see Nebraska county codes), the pages can get enormous to download.  Beginning with the "72" base, I have split the pages into the following bases, each being a link to my website page of that type:

2005 covered wagon base:  The following design was introduced in 2005 ("2006" expiration sticker).  The design follows the previous sand hill crane base as a flat plate and county coded for all but the state's most populous counties: Douglas County #1 (Omaha), Lancaster County #2 (Lincoln), and Sarpy County #59 (suburb of Omaha).  (See Nebraska county codes page.)  Those three largest counties used the "AAA 000" plate number format with no county designation on the plate.  This design was also used as the basis for the design of the state's quarter design issued in 2006.

Another variation on this plate is the different blanks the plates were printed on, although it is unknown when one started and/or the other ended, if there is any "cutoff".  Some plates have been found on a thicker aluminum with a recessed edge for strength, but most I've seen are a completely flat plate from end to end.
