Although tabs say December of the year as an expiration, there may have been a grace period into 1976 when the 75 tabs were still valid. The tabs were issued to Nova Scotia residents to update their 1972 and 1975 type plates.

Non reflective plates were first issued in 1972, while the reflective plates came out in 1975
