MONTANA OFFICIAL MAPS

Notes:
A map dated 1928 and titled “Official Map of Montana” was produced by AAA and is not included in this list.
Maps printed from 1955 through 1979, with the exception of the 1970 issue, have an area on the back cover for putting a person’s address when mailing the map. Some maps in this era also had a printed postage permit added to the upper right corner of the address area. The years known to have a postage permit added are: 1955, 1956, 1957, 1958, 1959, 1960, 1962, 1963, and 1971. A map from 1963 is also known to exist that has a “VOID” stamped over the permit.

The reason for the second printing of the 2003-04 map was due to the first printing showing thousands of miles of dirt roads as being paved. This was corrected on the second printing.
