Who can identify the plate on this 1950 Hillman Minx, taken by Member EU83 John Pemberton  c. 1951?

January quiz M-3139

January quiz      M-3139     Pemberton archive

He though it was Madeira, yet HOPED it might be Macao!    I cannot agree with either – but cannot offer an alternative.

The  separator dash  is  odd…….

Answers/ideas, please, in the box below.

FEBRUARY 2013  UPDATE M-3139

NO-ONE CAME UP WITH AN ANSWER ON THIS, BUT MORE RESEARCH BY THE WRITER HAS ESTABLISHED THAT IT IS A NORMAL MADEIRA PLATE FROM THE POST-WAR SERIES, WHEN THE NUMBERS WERE NOT DIVIDED BY THE CLASSIC PORTUGUESE DASH, BUT THE SINGLE LETTER ‘M‘ WAS!      AZORES USED  ‘A‘  IN THE SAME WAY AT THAT TIME.
