Spotted in Portland

This is the optional "retro" plate Oregon is issuing in celebration of the state's 150th birthday. The original plate of this type was the standard issue in Oregon from 1959 to 1964. This is a limited edition plate with only 40,000 to be offered when the plate was introduced, but now the Oregon DMV has increased the number to 80,000. These plates will be available for passenger vehicles only. They became available March 1, 2010. There is a one-time surcharge of $100 to get a set of these plates, but no extra charge to renew them. Proceeds from the sale of these plates will be divided between the Oregon State Capitol Foundation and the Oregon Historical Society.

The sample has the number 9P-0000, and numbering began at 9P-0001. The series will end at 9T-0004.

Spotted in Coos Bay

Oregon uses a generic format of A AAA on its various Specials, although some types use the same AAAA format with no spacing. Generally, the tree base uses a space, but the new Military and Bicycle plates do not have a space. As in some other states, plates are made on demand rather in blocks, so DAAA could be a Military plate, and DAAB could be a "Share the Road" plate.
