This optional base became available in 1999, but it was replaced in 2010 by the optional Centennial plate. Balloon plates are no longer available, but they are still valid.
Apparently issued NM1234, 1NM234, 12NM34, 123NM4, 1234NM, then AA 001 to BZ 999, then CAA001 to DZZ999. The E series was skipped on the balloon plates, so FAA001 followed DZZ999. The series ended at LGP999.

This plate is missing "Land of Enchantment" and the plant in the lower left corner. The wheelchair logo is on the left, and H/P was originally stacked on the right, but now it has shifted to the left after 9999 H/P. "Handicapped" is embossed below the numbers.
The latest high for this type was on the Centennial base.
