In Montana the ham plates are free plus a small administrative fee.  In 
1955, there was a ham in the state legislature that got the bill entered 
and passed.  He wrote the "free" clause into his bill, and except for an 
administrative fee added later, it has stuck.  Montana was one of the 
first few states to get "ham plates."  They're still manufactured at the 
state prison in Dillon MT.
