USA-1 Plates
« on: April 10, 2013, 05:08:29 AM »
Does anybody know for sure when the cut-off was for the USA-1 plates backing finish change. I thought the early ones had the green nitrate back. Then the later ones still had the same separation and spacing, but had the brushed aluminum back. Was it in the 70's that they got rid of the green back? .... The picture shows green back. I always thought these were 69' - 70'....  Danny
