For financial documents, a more complicated form of symbols is used:
1: 壹 2: 貳 3: 參 4: 肆 5: 伍
6: 陸 7: 柒 8: 捌 9: 玖 10: 拾
The best security for thousands of years has been simple - be a suspicious bastard.
You can also easily change a one into a ten, for example. Note also that it's not exactly a positional number system like Arabic. E.g. the number 123 would be written 1 hundred 2 ten 3. IIRC you can also easily change a ten into a hundred or thousand, so for larger values with a few zeroes in between you could shift a meaningful place into the zeroes to the left sometimes.

Interesting that the the military vehicles don't get it. It makes some sense that they wouldn't need it, but I can't imagine that it would hurt to have it.

The police issues their own plates as well and they manage fine.
What does this phrase mean?
Note to others: also "civilian", mostly un-marked car models, buses, trucks etc. get the old-style, non reflective plates in our military.
Then again, their layout looks vastly different from civilian plates, so someone forging a BW plate doesn't really gain anything.

Given the amount of money spent on vehicle licensing, the additional work to create a font is small potatoes. It certainly doesn't cost more to produce.
It's analogous to choosing between TAI and UTC time in a system. They differ by only 36 seconds, but UTC clocks break during leap seconds. Why not just choose the right one.
Whilst the DIN typeface was using a proportional font,
the FE-Schrift is a monospaced font (with different
spacing for letters and numbers) for improved machine
When you think about it, although the stamps are not that hard to fake, stealing a number plate is a matter of a second. You just clip it out of a plastic frame.
