Excellent -- worthy of the History Detectives.
You likely need a friend in the DMV. Okay, not a real friend but
someone who will take an interest in what you want to do and why you
want to do it.
In my experience finding such a person by just going into the license
branch is a long shot.
Don't know if you have these in WA, but in Arizona we have local
private license branches that are less hurried and more willing to
work with a 'problem'. They charge an extra service fee but deliver
on that service. If you have these it might be a place to try.
Also... maybe thru the list or a local club you might find 'someone
who knows someone' who can help. In addition to car clubs, a member
of your local license plate club (if you can find such a thing) may
have a useful contact.
I had an unusual request for the Arizona MVD and worked the phone a
bit calling the main office in Phoenix until I got someone who was
friendly and helpful. In the end it worked for me as she told me how
to go about what I wanted to do and sent me a copy of the procedure
manual section on the subject (the local branch had told me it
couldn't be done) -- but swore me to never reveal how I came by the
Good luck -- certainly worth trying to do.
