1973 embossed "VIRGINIA" base:  This is the first multiyear base.  The entire plate is embossed and used a "AAA-000" plate number format.



1979 screened "Virginia"/border base:  The first design to follow the bicentennial plate began in 1979 ("80" expiration sticker) and had "Virginia" screened onto the plate using upper and lower cased lettering for the state name.  The plate numbers continued the "AAA-000" format, but the blocks were not issued sequentially.  Previously, the state did not use the letters "I", "O", and "Q" in any blocks.  To stretch out the series, blocks previously skipped that would have used these letters were now produced.  This design started out using a half-square to create a sticker "box" in the top corners, but was later removed at some point.

2002 400th anniversary of Jamestown base:  This series began in 2002 with "03" expiration stickers.  In anticipation of Virginia's 400th anniversary celebration of the founding of Jamestown in 2007, slogans were added at the bottom of the standard passenger plate.  At first, the state added the simple caption "1607 400th Anniversary 2007" at the bottom of the plate in three different types.  The first base began in the "Jxx 0000" series and rolled forward with the modified slogan beginning early in the "K" series.  A total of four different types were as follows:

     Type I: The slogan added as a decal affixed to the bottom of the plate.  The state name in blue.
     Type II: The slogan screened at the bottom of the plate.  The state name in blue.
     Type III: Same as type II, but the state name in red.
     Type IV: The slogan was modified with a new design.  At left was the celebration logo and at right was
                    "2007".  In the center was "JAMESTOWN" in blue over "America's 400th Anniversary" in red.
