West Virginia

West Virginia License Plates

West Virginia issued its first license plate in March 1905. The 1905 WV license plate was dated 1906 and made of embossed metal, probably steel.  This was a smaller than standard license plate, and had an expiration date of March 1906. The West Virginia license plates from 1907 through 1916 were made of porcelain.  The only years West Virginia issued undated license plates were 1907 and 1908, all other years were dated with an embossed year or later expiration decals.

The 1921 and 1922 West Virginia license plates had a unique circular embossing of the abbreviation of the state WVA.  The state of West Virginia introduced retro-reflective sheeting in 1961 and continues to manufacture license plates with retro-reflective sheeting today. In 1963 West Virginia issued a commemorative license plate with the slogan "1863 CENTENNIAL 1963" on both the 1963 and 1964 license plates.  From 1965 through 1976, West Virginia embossed the slogan "MOUNTAIN STATE" on the top of all license plates.  The slogan "WILD, WONDERFUL" was introduced in 1976 and is still used on license plates 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 just received my order #99941. I am so pleased with the quality, the professional packaging to protect the plates, and the rapid processing and delivery of the product.These plates are perfect for my 1988 MZB 560 SL.It's nice to see a company such as yours in the marketplace that truly cares about quality and professionalism.

Jason - Columbus, Ohio

I got your plates today. Wow, they are fantastic! They look very professionally done and the color matches perfectly. I couldn't ask for any better. It was done exactly as I had drawn it up. Hats off to you.If you twisted my arm and forced me to say anything less than "perfection" I'd say I wouldn't mind if the metal were twice () as thick. It does seem a bit thinner than what I had expected.These custom plates rock! Thanks a bunch. :)Jason

Christian - Miami Springs, Florida

Just wanted to express my thanx. The previous order was excellent and just what i was expecting from you guys. You people do and excellent job and one can always be happy and satisfy with the product that you all provide.On the text that i wrote i placed a space between the "cr753" and the "@". The reason that i included that space was because in the preview of the plate, it just didn't seemed to look correct without the space. If the space is not require for the plate to look like the one you guys have as a sample, please do not include the space.Once again, i would like to commend and thank you all for your excellent craftsmanship and service you provide. If you all ever are able to acquire the front plate holders for the front Italian plates, please don't hesitate to write me and email so i may be able to procure one from you guys... Thank you...

THANKS, the actual plate you made looks much better in person than the proof you sent for me to approve, you went above and beyond my expectations, and thanks for taking the time to get it right.

Caesar C Chicago Illinois

I picked up my license plate from my aunt's place this weekend and I just wanted to let you know it arrived safe and sound, and to say it's very beautiful, and to say thank you so much for helping me and making sure I finally got it. It looks perfect and exactly like the real license plate from that era; I can't believe how similar it is to the real thing! Again, thank you very, very much! It (and you) are wonderful!
