Plates come in two shapes: large rectangles and bars.
For the Italian plates the large rectangles are about 3mm wide by 2mm tall and the bars are about 4mm wide by 1mm tall.
For the German plates the large rectangles are about 3.5mm wide by 2mm tall and the bars are about 5mm wide by 1mm tall.
Also included in the set are some gun barrel kill rings in black and white in groups of 5, 10, 20 and 30.

As for the plate numbers I have no idea if they are based on real plate numbers or just made up. I can say that plate SS-51383 does belong to an Adler 3Gd of the 3rd SS Division "Totenkopf", according to the SS Plate Number List found on the website (which also has a link to a picture of the vehicle).

The printing for the most part appears to be excellent though there is a bit of out of register printing apparent on some of the Italian plates which have a partial thin black outline. Also a few of the plate numbers are skewed somewhat to the left side of the plate. Each image is printed on a separate piece of very thin clear transfer material as opposed to being printed on a continuous clear sheet. The inks appear to be quite opaque and should not allow dark camouflage to bleed through and alter the colour.

Thanks to Dave Winfree of Decal Details for this review sample.
