Why would a serial number plate be missing from a tractor?

The s/n plate on my Cub was missing when I bought it. At the time, I wasn't too concerned. But I've wondered about it. Could it be that at some point in the tractor's life the tractor could had been stolen? Or would somebody have taken just the plate? Occasionally you hear of other tractors with the plates missing. It seems unlikely that they have been accidently pulled off by tree limbs, etc. since most are located in reasonably secure places. What's been your all's experiences with these type things?

During WW2 there were some removed and sold on black market.

I don't understand why someone would buy a serial number plate on the black market. Please explain.

The tractor was sold on the black market.
The serial number was removed so the tractor could
not be traced.

Okay, so you're saying the tractor was first stolen, then sold on the black market? I would not have realized there would have been that much demand.

More than likely the clutch housig was replaced
and the tag didn't get switched.

What do the salvage yards do when one buys a cast housing which happens to have the plate on it? Maybe you guys have some heavily rebuilt tractors, from several junkers?
