The first plates used specifically for taxis were the Commercial Car (COM CAR) plates introduced in mid-1923. These were superseded in 1926 by a Commercial (COM) plate to which was affixed a metal weight/capacity seal with the legend “CAR.” These were replaced in 1931 by the C-prefix Commercial series bearing a metal weight/capacity seal inscribed “TAXI.” Next in turn were plates introduced in 1955 with “TX” embossed in the plate itself. This latter type continued in through about 1983. Since that time taxis have received regular Passenger Car plates.

Note: The weight/capacity seals used on these plates are commonly called “tabs” today, but during the years they were in use the only name applied to them was “seal.”
