1959 - Lincoln's Sesquicentennial

Indiana, which can lay claim to being the boyhood home of our nation's 16th President, Abraham Lincoln, marked the 150th anniversary of Lincoln's birth with the 1959 license plate, which swapped the "Drive Safely" slogan for one reading "Lincoln Year."

Aside from the slogan, the plate was very similar to 1957's issue.

This plate was issued in, appropriately enough, Spencer County, where Lincoln's family lived from 1816 to 1830.
