1951-1953: Indiana tries multi-year plates again

For 1951, a new, black-on-white plate with bolt holes instead of slots was issued (although some with slots are known to exist).

Metal restrictions were again in place because of the Korean War, and what metal was available wasn't the best of quality, so paint and plate often had difficulty remaining as one unit. Still, the plates would be used through 1953, dated in 1952 and 1953 by small metal tags, black-on-yellow for '52, black-on-light green for 1953.

1951 plate: Dubois County; 1952-53 tags: Spencer County
