PA FISHING LICENSES

RESIDENT LICENSES

 
   
 

Pennsylvania started issuing resident fishing licenses in 1922. As with most first year of issue licenses, they are rare and valuable. The 1922 fishing license was a 5 ½ “x 7” sheet of paper. Obviously, the combination of a paper license and water did not mix. As such, not many 1922 licenses exist. This is unique as the 1923 to 1959 licenses were buttons with paperwork. Some of the buttons have slots in the back where the information paper was stored. Starting in 1960, the Pennsylvania Fish Commission went back to a paper license. It measured 2 ½” x 4”. These paper licenses were used up to 1973. Once again, in 1974 and 1975, a small button was issued. This would be the last time a button was used for the fishing license. The small paper format is still used today. Condition is EVERYTHING with these licenses. They must be near mint to carry a premium value. Licenses with scratches, water stains, and cracking have a drastically reduced price; if one is even able to sell them. The 1922 license has a value of $1000 - $1500. The 1923 pin is valued at $450. The 1924 license is worth $325. The 1925 – 1929 pins are $100 - $250. The 1930s range in value from $50 - $125. The 1940s carry a value of $10 - $50. The 1950s bring $10 – 35. The 1974 and 1975 are $3 - $5. The paper licenses from 1960 – current are several dollars each.

BEWARE : I have seen aged photocopies of the 1922 and have seen reproductions of every Pennsylvania fish pin.
