1963 - A new wrinkle

Indiana decided to make a change from alpha county codes to numbering counties in alphabetical order for 1963.

In addition, the safety slogans were laid to rest this year, and the state's name was stamped fully across the bottom of the plate for the first time since 1955.

On the "how they're made" front, Indiana switched to thinner sheetmetal this year, with the end result being that the plates are not quite as sturdy as in past years.

This plate was issued in Randolph County.
