Default Does anyone from CA have YOM plates on their car?

My stickers just came (woo hoo!) but the little metal tags surprised me...you're supposed to mount the stickers to them sticking up from the plate Sounds kind of lame to me.

How would anyone know if you just put the stickers on the plate where they're supposed to go?

YOM Plates are any officially manufacture California License plates which are at least 25 years old and plates on a currently registered vehicle or trailer of a correspoding model year. Kit cars of vintage automobiles do not qualify for YOM plates. Base year plates must have the appropriate year validation sticker attached to be authenticated as other than base year (e.g., 1956 plate with a 1958 sticker = 1958 plate)...copy & paste from some dudes website.

This is the part I'm scratching my head about. I know what YOM plates are. I have the original black/yellow plates that came with my 65.

I got my YOM stickers without a plate. I put the stickers on the old plates and drive around like that. No issues

CA black plates (63-69?) and blue plates (69-?) have indents pressed in at the right and left. The yearly stickers were alternately placed into the indents. I don't recall a separate metal tag.
