Anthracite License Plates

"Anthracite is the only coal which evolved beyond geology. Here in Northeastern Pennsylvania it became the symbol and identity of a unique and historic region and cultural heritage. We, The people of the Black Diamond are the only people on Earth to take our cultural name from coal mining, iron making and railroading. In 2018, we celebrate the 250th Anniversary of our Anthracite family origin and destiny."
