Can't Find a General's Rank License Plate for your WW2 Jeep or MV?

Is it a real WWII era license plate?
Was there more than one way to display rank on a vehicle?
Yes, pennants or flags, plates w/ cast stars, plates w/ painted stars, plates w/ lacquered decals <details>
Do I need 1 plate or 2?
You might want to run 2 plates, front & rear, since you want to let everyone know you are a general.  They better not pass you from behind, and better salute you as you approach. But having the front one is the most important one, so it's up to you.
Can you supply me with a bunch of these?
No, I have a very limited supply of these WWII dated license plates.  Each one is unique!

Do a lot of people ask you the "What year is it?" question about your Jeep / MV?
Can't Find a License Plate that matches the year of your Military Vehicle?

Did military vehicles have license plates?
Yes, sometimes <details>

Were plates re-used during the war?
Yes <detailsUS Military 4-Star Army General MacArthur's Restamped License Plate
Did every state issue a plate for every year?
No, many states issued tags or windshield stickers to save metal for the war effort, so not all years are available. Here's a list <details>
My vehicle was made during a year when no plates were issued. Now what?
Get a plate from a preceding year and add a tag with the correct year.
Can I register my vehicle with these plates?
Maybe. Each state has different rules regarding YOM ( Year of Manufacture ) registrations. You will have to research that.

I am also going through several boxes of parts I had saved for my own jeep.  I find a few instances where I saved 2 of something, so I am selling off the spare. If I saved it for me, it had to be a good specimen.

Theaters: The Jeep was used in the ETO, PTO, CBI, UK, Mediterranean, North Africa, Italian, Stateside, Aleutian, Australia, South American / Panama, Russian / Eastern Front. Used Globally in all theaters ~ 'The sun never sets on the Mighty Jeep'
Branches: The Jeep was used by US Army, Navy, Marine Corps ( USMC version ), and Allies (Lend Lease).
Op/Ed: How did I get such great stuff?  I practiced the following;   I can always go earn more money next month, next year, etc., but I can't recreate a missed opportunity to buy a rare part.  There will always be mechanics, but there will not always be original parts available. It's that simple. If you see it, and you don't have one, buy it. Buy it before they are all gone, or the prices skyrocket. Example, a couple years ago my local body shop was charging $65/hr and I was selling rifle racks for $65. Today my body shop still charges $65/hr. But now rifle racks are selling for $200!   Where am I better off spending my money?  Which has the better return on my investment? When you run out of things to buy, that's when you should pay for labor/services, or better yet, fix it yourself.
