Here's a link to a Google image search that should give you some idea of what you're looking for. The plates are all different, but must carry certain information. I thought that noseweight was one of those items, but I could be wrong.

At the very least, you should be seeing a country of origin (an 'e' number - 'e11' if it's made in the UK) and an approval number. I think it's also supposed to have the noseweight on, but I could be wrong. All of the examples I've found seem to have it though.
