License plate truck Wehrmacht

Post by james37 » 10 Jan 2018 22:32

Good afternoon eveybody,
I found this license plate:

Photo 1 (Front): https://imgur.com/a/g1plK. It is about 32cm in lenght.
Photo 2 (Behind): https://imgur.com/a/ishzN. I am sorry for the photo out of focus.

Could someone help me understand something more? Is it a Wehrmacht license plate of a truck or what ? Unfortunately even if something were written it is illegible, completely rusty.

The last question but not the least why does have it a lock?

Thanks !

I saw only now that this isn't the appropiate section. Is there a moderator how could move the post inside "The Ron Klages Panzer & other vehicles" section ? Thanks.

I do not think you founda license plate, but a access plate to some storage tank, or boiler, steam engine, etc. gas tank.kerosine tank, water, etc

What do you mean with access plate? Do you have some example photos? Thanks!

An access plate covers a hole in the body or hull that is used to reach equipment, valves, etc., under the plate.

Thanks OpanaPointer . I have only one doubt, what was the function of the lock?

Obviously the sense of a lock is that it´s keeping something closed to prevent
unauthorised usage.
