1926 West Virginia License Plates
A pair of 1926 West Virginia Car License Plates, would look great on an antique '29 model Ford, Chevrolet, Dodge, Hudson but check with WV DMV before purchasing for year of manufacture registration to see if they allow the use for YOM purposes and if so will these plates qualify. The color of these antique passenger automobile tags is black with green letters, the full state name and date are both located at the top. These car tags will grade a full very good if not better, but there are 2 extra holes in 1 plate only, plus one has a bend at the top, which can be straightened out a lot. The department of motor vehicles registration number is 77-697. Early West Virginia pairs in this condition are getting hard to find today. The picture shows the actual pair of 1926 West Virginia car tags that are for sale at Brandywine General Store.
