December 2003 expiration on Delaware porcelain remake of the 1942 type. On the old 1942 plates, the C would have been smaller.
It would have also been the indicator of a commercial license plate.
However, in allowing older style of plates for use in Delaware, C plates often appear on other types of vehicles.
In this case, it was placed on a pick-up truck or SUV type vehicle.

Another Delaware Historic Plate Company remake with a an October 2003 expiration.
The owner had it on eBay the week of 11/19 to 11/23, 2001 with a $5,000.00 minimum bid.
She evidently felt it was original, but it is not.
Even if it were original, a starting bid of more like $100.00 would have made  sense.
The C in the serial would also indicate that is a remake of a commercial plate even though this one was supposedly put on a passenger car.
Delaware authorities don't seem to be too choosy on the serial numbers on these remakes.

The owner of this plate asked the DMV commissioner in the 70's for permission to get a friend of his, also a DMV employee who made actual sheeting used for regular plates during that period, to make him a new 1750 with irregular numbers.
The numbers are screened or printed on the plate.
This plate, showing a September 2004 expiration was authorized by the DMV Commissioner.
