PA LICENSES

DEPARTMENT OF FORESTS AND WATERS

 
The Department of Forests and Waters was created in 1923 to consolidate the functions of the Department of Forestry, the Water Supply Commission, and the Bureau of Topographic and Geologic Survey. An outgrowth of the Office of Forest Commissioner, established in the Department of Agriculture in 1895, the Department was responsible for the acquisition and management of state forest lands, the development of state parks, the improvement of waterways, the protection of the Commonwealth's water supply, the supervision of flood control projects, and the protection of state and private forest lands. The Department of Forests and Waters was absorbed by the Department of Environmental Resources in 1971.
Starting in 1937, the Department of Forests & Waters required a license on each boat that used their lands; either for hunting or fishing. The licenses were madeofmetal from 1937 until 1966. From 1967 to 1970, the licenses were a hard plastic sticker. I have heard of several 1937 and 1938 licenses, but have never seen one. Licenses from 1937 to 1945 are scarce and valuable. Prices range from $200 - $600. Licenses from 1946 to 1965 range in value from $35 - $150. The 1967 to1970 stickers are actually hard to locate as most were used and then discarded. Values range from $30 - $75.

I am looking for 1937 and 1938 Dept. of Forests & Waters Licenses.
