Check out that weird numeric font, especially the droopy ‘0’, the arched ‘1’ and jagged ‘3’.

The use of unusual dies makes counterfeiting a lot trickier. This peculiar font was first used on British Columbia license plates in 1924 and reappeared frequently until 1956. The numeral four was also very unique… not mention how these numbers related to each other. Click here to see more examples.
