EXP 2-28-12 In 1992, a new series was issued with 20-year expirations, and a SEMI-PERMANENT legend.
In 1993, these switched to narrow dies like the LTT plates.

EXP 2-28-04 Starting in 2002, as the LTT plates were phased out, SEMI-PERMANENT plates were issued for varying registration periods,
the longest being 25 years.
Some of the initial 25-year plates bear 12-31 expiration dates instead of 2-28.   Some years have plates for both dates.
When a series is exhausted, a letter suffix is used, i.e. 05 1000A
Starting with the expire-2028 plates, the series starts at 28 1000Z.   After 9999Z, they went to 28 1000Y, etc.
