Mississippi License Plates

Mississippi began issuing license plates in 1912. There are no examples of Mississippi license plates which existed prior to 1912 with proper documentation. From 1912 through 1926, all Mississippi license plates were embossed/stamped vertically with the letters MISS. From 1914 through 1918 through 1918, the Mississippi license plates were undated. A horizontal embossing format was introduced in 1927: MISS. 1927.

A vertical MISS was reintroduced in 1941 through 1950. The vertical MISS was centered on the license plate. An expiration date: EX. 10-31-41 was embossed/stamped on the Mississippi license plate in 1941 and this continued to 1950. The 1951 Mississippi license plate issue was embossed/stamped with the county name beginning in 1951 and is still done currently although the county name is screened printed. Special issue plates like NASCAR do not have a screen printed county name.

The first slogan appeared on Mississippi license plates in 1977, a screen print of HOSPITALITY STATE along with a silk screened magnolia. The slogan was deleted in the 1981 Mississippi license plate issue. Over the early years, license plates issued in Mississippi were practical and there were no unique characters or embossed/stamped designs. Mississippi license plate colors included: White, Black, Blue, Aluminum, Light Blue, Cream, Gray, Silver, dark Green, Tan, Maroon, Dark Blue, Yellow and Orange. Retro-reflective white was introduced in 1956 and is still used today.

I just got my 4th plate from you today and I continue to be amazed by the quality of the product. Right down to the proper size and no-hole orientation of the 55 NY plate (I only learned that by going back and visiting the site). Thanks so much. You've helped to make several old cars of mine, my brother's and my best friend even more period-authentic. Great product and well worth the expense for something done with such a high level of quality! I guess that might be silly, since the originals were made by state prisoners ... but that's another story!!!

I received the JIG 59 plate on Sat. the 16th. Licenseplates.TV came through again as usual, I'm really pleased with the results. My grandpa's name was Louis, his nickname was Jig, due to the little "jig" dance that he would do. My 3rd son was able to find and buy back Jig's 1959 Pontiac Catalina 4dr Sedan, for which the plate will be added to the other things related to the car.Thanks again,Lanny

Hello:Wanted to let you know that I received my plate yesterday, and am very pleased. Your custom reproduction of a 1934 Florida plate is outstanding in every way, and the craftsmanship used to make it is obvious. I have purchased other plates from you folks, and the results have always been superb. Thank you, and keep up the good work.

Great plates, great selection, great price, quick delivery, free customization. What more could you ask for I could not find a Hungarian license plate anywhere else. I have a VW Jetta III, which has been converted to look like a Vento (the European name for the same car). The Hugarian plate is icing on the cake for the transformation. You guys have made my dream a reality.
