1974

In early 1973, when my late grandmother, Margaret Bruggenschmidt (1921-1984) picked up this plate at the Rockport license branch, she might have noticed that the corner boxes, by now an established style feature on Indiana's plates, were now squared off.

She might have noticed a bit more quickly that the year of issue, which "rode shotgun" with the abbreviated state name atop the plates from 1970 to 1973, was eliminated, allowing "INDIANA" to be embossed in all its glory for the first time since 1969.

As mentioned, this plate was issued in Spencer County at the Rockport license branch.
