In general, all private/passenger plates are the original 1971 series, i.e. the letter "C" and a serial number, with several design (layout) changes over the years. Not all changes occurred at the same time in all districts.
1973 plates had no district code. In 1981, wide dyes and a four digit registration was used. In 1989, dyes became narrower and the registration was expanded to five digits (with leading zeroes). Since around 2009 (?) plates are made of flat plexiglass or plastic, with and official seal. Many exceptions exist.
It is unknown if these are "new" 2010 - 2011 general issues (designs).
