Just a thought. Was going through the pictures and post's of all these. What a great resources for information! Better yet if someone had the time to separate by year and/or state. Just a thought.

Your right of course, this thread could be a good resource. Perhaps the easiest way to that end is if all the original posters would edit their original post, and add the following caption to their already posted photos: "year, state, license plate", for example: "1925 Wisconsin License Plate". That way one could use the search feature and search for a year and state license plate, and if it were in this thread, it would show up in the search results. Because this thread was started just as a lark, many folks just posted a photo with a caption like: "here is the plate on my 1926". However, it would be a very minor edit for the original posters to add a caption to their photo, providing the year and state information. As a demonstration, use the search feature to search for 1925 Wisconsin License Plate, and you will see what I mean.

Since only the original poster can edit their own post, each individual poster would need to edit their original post themselves to add this information.

HI All

Nova Scotia, Canada didn't issue regular metal plates until 1918. Between 1907 and about 1912 the government issued metal registration tags to be attached to the dashboard and they were to be returned when the car was sold or scrapped. As a result they are not the easiest to find. The owner was to then make a home made number plate with the registration number to be hung on the front and back of the car. The home made plates appear to be more common than the registration tags.

This one is from 1910 and was originally mounted on a Ford. I was able to look the number in up the old records in the archives to confirm it. So here is a picture of the tag on a photo of the page with the registration info.

I will second the Potato comment. I grew up with a garage where a previous owner had tacked up Idaho plates from 1919 into the '40s. It was a kind of shrine to me with the colors and numerals of a different world. At some point in time the '28 potato plate had been discarded for a shelf. Plates were not readily available when I got into cars. Finally a friend found a '28 and gave it to me. Dad had saved late plates and I do have a '48 potato plate too which is also a treasure.

Arizona became a state on February 14, 1912 and required motorists to register their car. The first state automobile registration was on September 20, 1912, and a 2" aluminum disc was provided to the motorist when registering the auto. The motorist was required to make a license plate (kits were available) and the numerals had to be at least 3" tall. The plate itself could be made of leather, wood or metal and the state initials had to be on the plate.

Finding an original registration disc today is difficult as only 3300 discs were produced for 1912-1913, but I wanted to have one on my 1913 touring. I made the leather plate and found the "correct" numerals for the plate. Russ Furstnow

It is a nice touch that Tennessee labeled the individual plates: "Front" and "Rear". I always get them mixed up. Plus now you can tell if your Studebaker is coming or going.

The way to authenticate it is on the top of the reverse side.
The plates were produced by the MacDonald Mfg. Co. Limited Toronto.

This is my legal license plate. The HV stands for Historical Vehicle.
The second 'H' could be any letter depending on when the plate was issued.

This is my 1912 Canadian Model T Ford. The rear door handle has been properly put vertical
after this picture was taken. I had a nice plate frame made for the T. Apparently it's gold
plated brass and won't tarnish!?! We'll see.

I posted this in response to the picture at the bottom of page 1 showing all the different “size” Wisconsin plates from 1925:

Wisconsin started with low numbers on January 1st and issued plates consecutively. So, generally a “low number” was more likely to be a “carry-over” registration from the previous year (a car older than a particular years license plate) due to the fact that the first quarter of the year isn’t too big for new car sales.

All the WI license numbers up to 1955 are available for anyone to look at on microfilm at the Wisconsin Historical Society archives at the UW Library in Madison. The listings are by plate number and not cross referenced, so you can find out who owned your plate and what it was on, but next to impossible to find the serial number of a car...

The plate currently on the Georgia Peach T 🍑 because that’s where she’s cruised most of her miles. It’s affixed to the front of the 13T because Georgia doesn’t have front plates... you can put whatever you want.

Dennis looking forward to getting that 26 Michigan plate, thanks.

Looking back on all these plates I did not see any from "Vacationland". Well a few weeks ago a neighbor was moving and as he was departing he dropped this off, not bad for 100 years + :D

Mr Rofe was the local Ford Dealer in the New Zealand town of Marton. When car licences (registration) first occurred it was done by the local municipalities- in this case the district of Rangitikei. The town clerk managed to get 'R 1', but Charles Rofe was next in line and got R 2. At the time one could paint the number on the car or make up your own plate, so what better way to advertise than a Ford number plate?

The plate is brass, the R 2 is copper and the bright work is German Silver.

If there is an enthusiast (preferably in N.Z.) that would like to purchase the plate, Let me know by P.M.
Dane.
