This set contains nothing of much value or unusual interest.  It is simply a self-indulgence, shared here with you.

My intent is to build a set of modern US passenger plates.  Modern is a broad term, and may include plates as old as from the 1980's, when graphic plates began to become popular.  This set will not be from any particular year, but in general they will be embossed or debossed plates rather than screen-printed (flat).  Other than that I am choosing to go for the graphic design that I like and can obtain.   In a very few cases there are more than one for a particular state, based simply on my likes.   You will see also a very few older plates with no graphics, just because I happen to particularly like them.
 
This collection also includes the populated US overseas territories including the defunct Panama Canal Zone,
and the leased Guantanamo Bay territory.  For the territories there are in some cases both modern and historic plates.  
 
Note that I am not including plates used in other countries by US Forces, though I do have or have had plates of this sort.

ARIZONA

This is a typical modern screened plate from Arizona.  You have to go well back in time to get an embossed plate, and this is what I am looking to get.
 
ARKANSAS

 
CALIFORNIA

 


 
COLORADO

 
CONNECTICUT Not yet acquired 
DELAWARE
 
Although my aim is to include only modern embossed plates with graphics, this is impossible when it comes to Delaware.  This state went straight from the unusual riveted type shown above, to the flat screened type shown below, used there now for many years, and with no graphics.

"Ski Utah!" was introduced in 1985 and was a standard issue until discontinued
 in 2008 and replaced by the optional (at first) red top ski plate.




The "Arches" plate was introduced in 1992 as an extra-cost optional plate, but
in 1997 became a standard issue, along with the Ski Utah! type.




The Olympic plate was a popular extra-cost issue, now discontinued but
still renewable and valid.

 




The red top plate began as an optional in 2007 but from 2017 it became a standard, along
with the Arches plate and "In God We Trust"
