One of a Kind Why would anyone collect LICENCE PLATES? Why would anyone collect bottle caps, string, cards, matchbook covers, dirt, or a million other variations of collectibles? FOR FUN! Not only that, but how many hobbies can boast pieces with a myriad of colors, designs, origins, types, sizes and materials comparable to license plates? And license plates are still one of the more affordable hobbies going! Prior to 1911, the only motor vehicle license plates were issued by cities. The license plates from 1909 to 1911 were made of porcelain. The first statewide Arkansas license plate was issued in 1911 and these were made of steel. The first slogan was embossed on Arkansas license plates in 1935 “CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION”. The 1941 Arkansas license plate had the embossed slogan “OPPORTUNITY LAND” on the bottom. Then in 1950, the modified slogan was changed to “LAND OF OPPORTUNITY” and was used each year until 1967. It was not until 1975 that the slogan “LAND OF OPPORTUNITY” was again screen printed on the Arkansas license plates and this continued to 1978. The slogan “THE NATURAL STATE” was introduced in 1989.
