No, it's not an Ohio plate. It's our neighboring state from the east, Pennsylvania. We saw this license plate in the Rosenberger Drive parking lot at Bluffton University.


A Buckeye fan and maybe OSU grad


You've seen this familiar plate around town on a dark colored van. Can any viewer identify the OSU fan who owns this plate?


This plate has a ring to it


Greg Ring doesn't make it easy to take a photo of his license plates. He covers the plates with some sort of protective devise. It really causes a glare when you take a photo with a flash. Greg ought to know better. GMDE stands for Greg, Mary, Don and Ethan Ring.


It's from Berne, Indiana

Berne, indiana license plate

If this car is not from Berne, Ind., then my name is not Menno Simon. We saw this plate in the Rosenberger Drive parking lot recently. Berne is in Adams County, Indiana.

What's the message here?


This plate was seen in the Rosenberger Drive parking lot at Bluffton University. On first glance doesn't it appear to state "Amish"? or is that our own imagination. We do not know the real meaning of the plate.


Probably an OSU grad

AG 98

What do you want to bet that AG is a '97 grad of Ohio State University?
