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

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.
