  • Large black buffalo first observed on special graphics in mid-2011 and this gradually appeared on all other special graphics followed by regular personalized and Veteran plates in summer 2012. All new types introduced thereafter feature this new black bison and will not be tracked on this page.
  • *PCO, PCP and PCQ not produced.
  • **large gap between high and low due to spring 2013 availability of smaller 4x7" size starting at 5EB01 and very popular compared to previous larger size with and older bison. Note the larger, older plate produced with black bison has not yet appeared as of late 2014.
