CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - License plates touting Nevada’s 150th birthday are near the top of the best-seller list.

The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles reported that more than 13,500 are actively registered as of the end of May. The blue plate with the slogan “Battle Born” is the fourth most popular specialty license plate design, behind a Las Vegas centennial plate, a Lake Tahoe plate and one with the slogan “United We Stand.”

Fees from the plates have so far provided about $480,000 to the foundation that coordinated celebrations of Nevada’s statehood. That’s a significant chunk of the $1.8 million dollars the foundation has reported raising.

The anniversary of Nevada’s statehood was Oct. 31, 2014.
