New Hampshire is adding a new letter to its popular moose license plates, after selling out of two past letter combinations. 

 

The state has issued nearly 50,000 of the special conservation plates in the past 20 years. 

 

Now, state natural and cultural resources commissioner Sarah Stewart says they need more letter combinations. 

 

"The letter C for conservation - that was the first letter, then we added H for heritage - and now this spring, we've added P for preservation to meet demand," she says.

 

The plates cost $30 a year and have raised $20 million for state departments and grant programs—focused on issues like land conservation, historic preservation and recreation.

Stewart says moose plates can also be combined with vanity plates or state park plates.
