1920 Washington License Plate Full Porcelain TRUCK Twice as Rare as Passenger!!
There were several license plate varieties for Washington in 1920. This one is a three-color plate made with a totally porcelain surface.Washington passenger license plates used an X to the left of the 20, while Truck plates used a T in that spot. In 1920, only ONE plate was issued to trucks, while passenger cars displayed two plates. This makes Truck plates twice as scarce as passenger plates.Porcelain Washington license plates were not made of the the same nice, thick porcelain on heavy steel slabs, as were the earlier plates issued by the Northeastern US states. Instead, the steel was quite thin, and the porcelain finish very sparse. They were prone to chipping, as well as to developing hairline cracks in the finish. Condition on this one is still better than average for this variety of plate to survive. This plate also has touch-up. Please see the close-up photos for detail. The only black touch-up is on the white left side of the plate, just a few small dabs on the N. Both the white and yellow background areas have touch-up, but there is NO touch-up at all on the black serial numbers. This plate still has some surface gloss after nearly a century.Priority Mail shipping is a low $4.99 in the US.YES, we combine shipping costs!
