Here we have a vintage 1951 Tennessee license plate. This plate features the iconic state shape design and the number 3D-5382. The orange and white color scheme was selected by the state as an ode to the University of Tennessee, which also happened to coincide with their 1950 and 1951 NCAA National Championship wins. This piece would be great for a Vols alum or fan!

Tennessee issued license plates in the shape of the state from 1936 through 1956, when in 1957 the Federal Government mandated standard rectangular plates for all states. This plate was issued in county 3, Knox County. Tennessee shaped plates are highly collectable and look great as wall decor.

License plates make great house warming gifts or gifts for someone who was born the year the plates were issued, and they look stellar on a wall in a collection with many different states and colors. This old auto tag would be a neat gift for someone who lives in Tennessee, souvenir to remember a trip to the state, or even as decor to a Tennessee lover.


The plate is in 100% original condition, with no touch ups or restoration. It is in good original vintage condition overall and shows a little wear and character the years of use and storage. Most notably, some surface rust around the edges and at the mounting holes.


We have many of other license plates, find them here!
