Oregon has a colorful and interesting license plate history. Through the years, Oregon plates were issued for all types of specialty groups including motorcycles, grocery delivery, city service vehicles, farms, airplanes, and taxies. Cities and towns even issued their own plates. This makes collecting plates in Oregon fun and interesting! The earliest known Oregon registrations date from about 1905. Most of these were painted directly onto the vehicles, some plates were made of leather and even porcelain. In 1908 a properly manufactured plate (made in Boise, Idaho) was made available to motorists. These early single plates were made of two pieces of steel soldered together at the corners. In 1911, Oregon issued it's first state license plates which were manufactured in Portland, at the Irwin-Hodson Company, where some are still manufactured today.
The first silk screened base was issued in 1988 when the current "tree plates" were issued. Since 1988. The image is the standard Oregon License Plate, with the letters and numbers of 101 LCL.
