Sesquicentennial plates are a big hit

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — License plates which celebrate the state’s 150th anniversary of statehood proved to be a hot item for the West Virginia DMV.

“We’ve actually sold over 9,000 Sesquicentennial license plates,” said Natalie Harvey with the West Virginia Division of Motor Vehicles.”They have been very popular.”

The agency unveiled the new plates which featureĀ a gold background of the state seal and outline of the state, only a few months ago. Harvey said they are in limited supply and if motorists are interested they should buy them soon.

“Once all of them are sold, there won’t be any more to purchase,” said Harvey.

You can renew the plate for as long as you wish, but if it becomes worn it may not be replaceable with another Sesquicentennial plate.

The DMV will have a display at the state Culture Center this weekend and will have the plates available. Anyone interested should bring their vehicle registration and a copy of their 2012 tax receipt.
