PA HUNTING LICENSES

RESIDENT

 
   
   
 

Pennsylvania began issuing resident hunting licenses in 1913. These licenses were made of canvas and had accompanying paperwork. The 1913 is one of the most sought after licenses. Values can approach $2,000. It is the one license most collectors need to complete their set. In 1924, the licenses were switched to aluminum. These licenses were lightweight and were prone to bending. As such, many of these licenses show wear. The 1924 is the most valuable of the metal hunting licenses. In 1927, aluminum was ousted in favor of tin plate. Unfortunately for the collector, these licenses can rust and many are found in poor condition. From 1924 to 1937, the county number the license was issued in is at the top of the license. Certain counties are more valuable as they issued fewer licenses. COUNTY NUMBER LIST Metal licenses can range from $20 to $250.

Once again, change was in order and in 1942, the licenses were made of a cardboard material. While there have been modifications in cardboard thickness, deer report card attached, and tags added, there is not anything note-worthy of mentioning as their value is minimal. Cardboard licenses range from $2 to $40.
