tks for the info, wilde,...

the USA number you gave me is not in the known range of Convertos'...

feel free maybe to double check it... and have a look at my list on 1st page.

DoD is always unknown, as the date shown on the plate is the contract's date only.

you probably have the youngest trailer still existing.

as you probably know, the 1944 contract was lasting until USA 0886688.

Why is the serial number on my plate (4348) same as the one with WD Registration number 0886653?

ALL the late dataplates are showing the same "4348" in the "serial No" field...

..nonetheless, I'm pretty sure that this had never to share with the "serial number" usual meaning: Convertos' never had a serial number on them, but USA numbers only.
