Possibly from a collision repair.
I have seen a few from other states that were due to collision repair.
Do all 3 VINs match?

Unfortunely in my state of Wa. that tag is installed as proof of an insurance toatal or theft recovery that has been rebuilt then inspected by the state patrol pryor to authorizing a new title.I believe they will issue an asigned vin# if the original tag is missing.
