There is no license plate in America that is as original as Vermont. The plate has a simple design and for that reason it is recognized everywhere. It is a green license plate. That is it. There are no pictures or state mottoes on the plate; there are no tourist plugs attempting to get you to visit the Green Mountains. The green plate is like the rolling pastures and foliage in Vermont: a thing of beauty. The simplicity of the vintage Vermont license plate has made it a valued collectible.
The vintage Vermont license plate is a lot like the people in Vermont. What could that green colored plate mean except a desire to return to the land, be a homesteader, or perhaps go green?
