Massachusetts License Plates

Massachusetts has the honor of being the first state in the union to issue license plates in 1903. The first example hadMASS AUTOMOBILE REGISTER on top of the license plate. Beginning in 1903 through 1915, Massachusetts license plates were made of porcelain and numbers were painted on. There is no written record of early Massachusetts license plates.

The first graphic to appear on license plates fromMassachusetts was an embossed codfish on the bottom of the 1928 issue. This was in honor of commercial fishing in the state and to promote the fishing industry. Massachusetts fishermen were horrified to see the codfish on the 1928 license plate swimming away from the word MASS and many superstitious fishermen viewed this as bad luck. This error was corrected on the 1929 Massachusetts commercial license plate where the codfish actually swam toward MASS.There was another symbol embossed/stamped on the bottom of 1926, 1930 and 1933 Massachusetts license plates – a horizontal line through a circle,which some may interpret as a rising sun or the planet Saturn.

Massachusetts was one of the wealthiest states in the union in the early days of the automobile and many collectors of fine automobiles hail from the state. Like Iowa, Washington and Maryland, Massachusetts license plates were utilitarian and simple, but because of history, extremely popular with car collectors. Today, one of the most popular license plates in the state is the translucent green on retro-reflective white license plate first issued in 1977. Massachusetts issued its first retro-reflective license plate in 1967 –blue on retro-reflective white.

After ordering a German European Union plate for my Audi from another company and waiting two months for delivery, I cancelled that order and placed one with LICENSEPLATES.TV - The order was submitted on Wednesday, arrived in Excellent condition the following Monday and was on my car that evening. I appreciate your efficient and prompt service.

I had seen this website about 6 months ago prior to purchasing my 2009 VW Jetta. When I finally bought the car I slowly started modifying it: 15" Kicker sub in a ported box, HID lights, smoked taillights, clear sidemarkers, and even a 2" shorty antenna. After debating with myself whether to make the purchase or not I finally gave in and ordered my German license plate with the Universal Holder. About a business week later the plates arrived and I was nervous & anxious to see how they had turned out...the product AMAZING! I still can't believe I only paid $36 for these plates that could easily have been sold for $150. The quality is top-notch and installation took about 5 minutes total. THANK YOU FOR HAVING SUCH GREAT PRODUCTS. I will definitely be recommending you guys.

I received the 1947 OREGON STATE LICENSE PLATE--EMBOSSED WITH MY CUSTOM NUMBER BY PRIORITY MAIL ON THURSDAY, MARCH 25th, I am impressed beyond words, looking atthe plate is like being transported back in time to see my late father's 1947 Black Buick RoadMaster, White topped Convertible that had the 380-497 plate, the car was stolen in Portland,and wound up on blocks in a field in Texas, it was beyond recovery, never saw it after that.As I e-mailed earlier, I will be ordering 2 more plates, possibly on Friday March 26th or Monday March 29th. My son will be helping with the ordering, he is more familiar with theprocess of using the computer.
