The nickname for the State of Missouri is the Show-Me-State, and entered into Statehood on August 10, 1821. The Missouri State Capital is Jefferson City. Missouri first started issuing license plates in 1911. From 1911 to 1917, a single license plate was issued. From 1918 to 1942, a pair of license plates was issued. In 1943, Missouri went back to issuing a single license plate due to the metal shortage during WWII (with a metal "tab" for 1943); and then the State went back to pairs of license plates from 1972 to the present.
