1934 South Carolina License Plates
A rare early pair of 1934 South Carolina auto license plates. If you wish to use these for YOM registration on your antique 1934 model car, you will first need to contact the SC Department of Motor Vehicles to see if they allow the use of license plates for YOM purposes and if so, will this set of plates qualify. This set of SC DMV Tags will grade very good, at some point in time, someone put a thin coating of something on these tags, however, I don't believe it hurt them any, if anything probably helped preserve them. In addition to being a complete early pair of SC tags, these also have the added benefit of having a low DMV registration number of H - 45. The color is black with yellow letters, at the bottom is SC and Expires Oct 31 - 34. The picture shows the actual pair of antique 1934 South Carolina license plates that are for sale at Brandywine General Store.
