German term or phrase: mit ungestempelten Kennzeichen

"Außerbetriebsetzung, Ruheversicherung, Fahrten mit ungestempelten Kennzeichen"

In connection with car inurance. I suspect it means driving without a tax disk, since the "Stempel" on a German number plate is basically the equivalent of the British tax disk.

license plate with a missing medallion

Assuming it is a small metal tab affixed to the license plate. In the US, it's called a medallion, not a 'seal' in this case. If its just a small paper label, it is a plain 'sticker'.

disagree  Jeanette Brickner: It would be a sticker in the US, and certainly not called a medallion. A medallion is more known for taxi companies, in which case it's never affixed to the plate as far as I'm aware, but those are sold for thousands of dollars and are a different thing.

disagree  Darrel Knutson: "He was pulled over for expired tags" is something I've heard many, many times.
