Patriotic Alaskan plate modification

I'd honestly never seen an Alaskan plate with alternate colors for any letters/numbers.
(This is the front plate; the back plate has stickers that match the hand labeling on the front plate) Thank you for your service!

Alaska permanent registrations for older vehicles starting Jan 1 2015

Starting in January, the Alaska DMV is going to allow permanent registrations for passenger vehicles and non-commercial trailers eight years or older. This is part of House Bill 19.

For collectors, this will mean a general reduction in the number of plates issued. For local governments, it also means a reduction of funding, so it's an opt-in program on a city-by-city basis and the city can also impose a separate tax.

Subtle item in the law not mentioned in the article: It would also bring back emissions inspection for these vehicles.

An interesting statistic from the article: the average age of a car in Alaska is 13 years!
