You could look at the thread from 2013 where Derk D was looking for a plate... some discussion there. Search ‘bridge plate’ in ‘For Sale - Wanted’.

Also a small amount of info here, about half way down the page:

I made my own (flat type, without the raised edge) for my Cab11 Chev.....some mush on Ebay was selling laser-cut steel discs, which helped!

Default Bridge Classification Signs were 6 inches in diameter

My bold:

"In order to help bridge sentries determine the weight of vehicles wanting to cross them, bridging discs were added to Canadian vehicles. These discs were 6 inches in diameter, painted yellow, bearing black numbers which indicated the weight class of the vehicles. The discs could either be a metal plate attached to the vehicle or else painted directly onto the vehicle. They were usually located on the right front fender, though on many vehicles the disc replaced the right front headlight. Vehicles pulling trailers would have two numbers, one indicated the weight class of the vehicle only, the other the weight class of both vehicle and trailer."
