Nebraska issued a Bicentennial themed plate for 1976. The number on the left side of the dot on the plate is a county code number. In the case of the plate on the left, 10 is for Platte County. The plates were made of aluminum, shown on the left, and galvanized steel, shown on the right. The 10-HS61 is a very late issued plate and, if issued at all, would have come out about 1981. 10-K307 has yearly expiration stickers stacked up to the year 1981.

1976 Nebraska plate issued in Madison County with grey coated back.

Counties 21 (Scotts Bluff) and 59 (Sarpy) stacked the county codes on their plates. I assume the black on blue month sticker on the plate on the right indicates the month of expiration.

In 1975, expiration tabs for 1977 were issued. The month of expiration is shown by the number. In this case, February, 1977. There were no 1976 expirations, and the 1976 base would not have been used without a 1977 or beyond sticker.
