On the drive in to the office this morning, i saw a most unusual thing - an SUV with a licanse plate without a state designation. It was not a government vehicle as far as I could tell (there were no markings). It was a standard-sized plate, numbered “MR-11”. At the top of the plate, where the state name is normally placed, were the letters “M.F.G.”. I missed the text at the bottom of the plate, but it might have said “apportioned”.
Two notes: I don’t live anywhere near a vehicle production plant. I couldn’t identify the make or model of the SUV (mainly because there are so many different kinds, and I don’t bother to remember).
Questions: What does this type of license plate designate? A manufacturing prototype? What other kinds of plates exist that are “state-less”?
