Kansas Car License Plates

     On July 1, 1913, the state of Kansas began requiring license plates for automobiles. For the first nine years Kansas license plates were undated. 1913 through 1920, plates are identified by the position of the letters "KAN" and by the color combination. From 1921 through 1976, dated plates were issued each year with the exception of 1943, when an unpainted metal tab was used to validate the 1942 plate. Tabs were also used in 1952 and 1953 to validate the 1951 plate. Beginning in 1977, stickers were used to validate the 1976 base through 1980. New base plates were issued in 1981, 1989, 1995, and 2002 with stickers used for all other years.

     From 1913 through 1929, there was no county designation on Kansas license plates. Plate numbers began at number 1 each year with approx. 39,000 plates issued the first year and close to a half million issued by the end of 1929. On four digit and higher plates, the number before the dash was just part of the registration number. Kansas began county coding in 1930, assigning each county a number from 1 through 105 based on the 1930 population census. The most populated county, Wyandotte, was assigned #1 and the least populated county, Greeley, was assigned #105. In 1951, the county number designation was replaced with a two letter county abbreviation embossed into the plate. If you are not sure what number or two letter code was assigned to a particular county, click on the "Kansas County Codes" button in the column on the left.

KS1914 car license plate #10
Kansas 1914 car license plate #10
Low numbered early Kansas plates are quite scarce and 2 digit plates before 1930 are almost unheard of among collectors. Plate has had major body putty applied to the top of the plate. Will most likely need some metal grafted on from a "donor" plate for a proper restoration. Obviously this plate has been very poorly repainted.
