Tennessee License Plates

Tennessee issued its first license plate in 1915. The 1915 Tennessee license plate was issued in July 1915 and the embossing on this plate read "EXPIRES DEC. 31, 1915". The 1916 issue was embossed with "EXPIRES DEC 31". The Tennessee license plates issued in 1926, 1927 and 1928 were embossed with FRONT and REAR.

All the license plates issued in Tennessee were dated, and all were steel in the early days until being replaced by aluminum in the 1960’s. The 1957 Tennessee license plate was 6” x 12”, but the license plate number was encircled in a map. The Tennessee license plates issued from 1958 through 1976 was designed with the state map outline embossed around the word "TENN". This map also outlined the slogan VOLUNTEER STATE on the 1984 license plate.

Beginning in 1977 and continuing on until 1987, the slogan "VOLUNTEER STATE" was adopted. The map of the state of Tennessee was first embossed on 1927 license plates.  This map embossing was inside a rectangular plate. However, from 1936 through 1956 the license plate of the State of Tennessee was actually shaped like the map of Tennessee. There was a bulge above the top left screw hole in 1936 and 1937 issues. This bulge was removed in 1938. Tennessee is the only state in the world which issued a license plate which is shaped like the map of the state.

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 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!!!
