Pennsylvania started issuing non resident fishing licenses in 1919. However, no collector has seen a 1919. There is only one issued 1920 non resident license known and it resides in this collection. Another collector has several unissued 1920 variations in his collection. They are just awesome. I know of no 1921, 1922, 1923, and 1924 licenses. There is one 1925 non resident license known and is also in this collection. In 1926, the license was switched to a button. 1926 licenses are rare and valuable. This collection has the only 1926 non resident fishing license with the accompanying paperwork. These licenses were issued in button format until 1959. The 1936 is a rare license to find. Just over 2,000 of these licenses were sold. How many could have survived?

Non resident licenses are much more difficult to find than resident licenses as far fewer were issued. In 1960, the licenses were made of paper. This continued until 1973. Buttons were used for the 1974 and 1975 licenses. In 1976 they returned to the paper license. This is the same style still used today. Once again, buyer beware. I have seen many reproductions of the non resident licenses. While it is almost impossible to value the 1919 to 1925 licenses, I will give it a shot. $1000 +. I have seen the 1926 sell for $2500 - $3000. The rest of the 1920s are valued at $125 - $500. The 1930s sell for $125 - $300 except the 1936 will sell for $1,000 +. The 1940s will average around $ 75 – 150. The 1950s will bring $40 – 100. The 1974 and 1975 sell for $3 - $5. The paper licenses, which lack collector interest, are $1 - $3.
