65-Kurdistan samples

These are samples of the (still current) 1982 series of plates for Iraqi Kurdistan. Direct from the German manufacturer, these are a rejected design. The two words at the bottom are Iraq and As-Sulaymaniyah. The real plates have the two words in reversed position with Iraq always at the right.
Remember, a mint plate from a German manufacturer has almost certainly come direct from Germany, never been in the country it is supposed to be from and is often a rejected design. Don’t buy mint German made plates.
