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!!!

Thanks for the plates, took 11 days to arrive (new record from USA to NZ, is usually a minimum of 21 days with other items), better plates than I expected, hope to do business again in the future. A+Paul D
