All you Freemasons and lapidary fans out there (what the heck??) two new specialty license plates go on sale in Idaho on Friday. I couldn't find a sample anywhere online of what they look like, but the new plates promote the charitable activities of Freemasons and awareness of earth sciences and lapidary education (the art of polishing, engraving, or cutting precious stones and gems).
The new license plates join about 40 other special interest options that allow Idaho drivers to financially support non-profit organizations.
From the sale of each license plate, all but $13 is deposited by the state treasurer into the non-profit organizations account.
The new plates can be personalized with up to five letters and/or numbers. The cost to personalize the plates is an additional $25.
Personalized and sample plates are only available directly from the Idaho Transportation Departments Boise office by using this link.
