MISSOURI
ALTHOUGH MISSOURI NEVER ISSUED
ANY PORCELAIN LICENSE PLATES,
THERE WERE QUITE A FEW PORCELAIN
CITY LICENSE PLATES FROM DIFFERENT
MISSOURI CITIES.  THE #35257 IS DATED
1915.  THE REGULAR ISSUED PLATE FOR
THAT YEAR WAS METAL AND IT WAS
BLACK NUMBERS ON A GREEN
BACKGROUND.  IT'S ANYBODY'S GUESS
WHAT THAT PLATE IS BUT IT'S THE ONLY
KNOWN EXAMPLE.  THE CITY OF ST.
LOUIS ISSUED PORCELAIN CITY LICENSE
PLATES FROM 1904 TO 1912.  THE 1912
IS A SMALL ROUND PORCELAIN PLATE.
THE TOP TWO PLATES WERE ISSUED IN
ST. LOUIS COUNTY ONLY IN 1906 &
1907. THE OTHER MISSOURI CITIES THAT
ISSUED PORCELAIN LICENSE PLATES
WERE KANSAS CITY, INDEPENDENCE,
ST. JOSEPH & ONE KNOWN EXAMPLE
FROM UNIVERSITY CITY, WHICH IS NEAR
ST. LOUIS.  THE KANSAS CITY 1912 #D45
IS A DEALER PLATE.  JUST RECENTLY
FOUND WAS A CITY PORCELAIN PLATE
FROM CHILLICOTHE.
