    In trying to determine when the 599 started receiving the 60th Anniversary interior plaque (otherwise known as the matricola plate), I've narrowed it down.

    S/N 150595 does not have the plaque, and 150620 does have the plaque. Does anyone have a 599, or know of a 599, whose serial number falls between 150595 and 150620, that does or does not have the 60th Anniversary plaque? Thanks.

    Well then it looks like we'll have to do this country by country. :)

    Both 150595 and 150620 are US cars. So it only makes sense that your car, an earlier Euro car, received the plaque before US cars received it.

    Hmm...

    I wonder why Euro cars would receive the plaques before others?

    I would have thought that all cars in production at any given time got the plaque.

    I noticed that some cars don't have a plaque at all (not even the one commemorating the F1 victories). Perhaps the factory couldn't attach the plaques as they ran out of glue? :)

    Where's your F1 champions badge? I'm pretty sure I remember seeing one in my car.

    599s which came with the 60th anniversary badge don't have the F1 badges.

    I've seen some early cars with no badges at all.
