Toughest/Most Rare New York plates: The 1964 New York World's Fair plate was the first to use a strip-like vertical validation sticker, for 1965. Only one plate was issued that year, so the "natural '64" is a hard one to find; for many collectors, a good stickerless '64 is the last hole filled in their New York run! Like a great deal of New York World's Fair memorabilia, the stuff from 1939 is more common than that from 64-65, (mainly because the earlier Fair was a greater success, and more items were saved.) Additionally, New York issued three years of initial World's Fair plates, each of them in pairs: a dated 1938, a '39 in reverse colors, and a '40, which like the '38 was yellow/orange on black. The fact that the '64 was issued as a single, that it was used for two years, AND was painted without a layer of prime all contribute to its scarcity.
