Hi-Signs dies used briefly in 2003 for plates DPA-DWC.

Series progressed from FTZ 999 to FWA 001 in mid/late-2010, from FXZ 999 to FZA 001 in late March 2011, and from GCZ 999 to GEA 001 in late October 2011. GFA-GFZ was omitted.

From Andrew Osborne: The bison at the top right corner of Manitoba plates changed from the blue-outlined one in use since 1997 to the solid black one that appears on Blue Bombers and Jets specialty at the start of the GLX series.

Andrew also reports that Manitoba issued the HEL series.

3-digit plates are embossed black on white, bison lower left, type introduced in 1967. 4-digit plates were ordered from Waldale.

Andrew Osborne advises that these plates are issued non-sequentially and numbers are pulled out of order, so there is no true high.

Winnipeg Jets NHL hockey team booster plate.

From Andrew Osborne: The high is J 17000 and it was reached several months ago after the initial WJ series sold out. The DMV says no more plates will be produced but we'll see what happens next hockey season.

From Andrew: On April 19, plates J17001 to J22000 will go on sale so the high will change soon but again, with 250 offices selling plates, there won't be a truly accurate high.

J22001 - J23000 produced autumn 2013.
