MSO vs MCO
The terms "MSO" and "MCO" can confuse people. The terms are very frequently used interchangeably but the MCO is really the modern certificate version of the old plain MSO form. The MCO is strictly designed and regulated unlike the informal plain MSOs. The MSO and MCO are similar forms and they are designed to perform the same function. They are the manufacturers title and birth certificate for a vehicle, component or product.
The old MSO was usually a letter-size sheet of plain-paper or simple ornamental paper with no real standards for paper, inks, form size, etc. The old non-standard MSO sheets are not universally accepted anymore.
MCO is the modern certificate version of an MSO and the MCO is accepted everywhere by everyone for everything. The MCO is sometimes referred to as the "50-State MCO" or "50-State MSO" because it is universally recognized and accepted.
BE AWARE: The term "MSO" is still commonly used in regulations and by DMV employees, but more often than not the modern MCO version of an MSO is what is actually required. In some DMVs and for some items - typically for components - an old plain-paper/ornamental paper MSO may still be accepted.... but then again, maybe it won't.
Bureaucrats may not know the technical terms ("MCO" versus "MSO") and may use them interchangeably but they know what an MCO is and what an MCO looks like and that is most likely what they expect and what they will accept. You will be very embarrassed if your customer gets turned down by a DMV because you tried to cheap-out on the type of MSO you use.
No one ever rejects an MCO because it isn't a simple MSO, but the reverse happens often.
That's why we ONLY sell the modern "50-State" MCO certificate form version of the MSO... you can't go wrong.
If - on the other hand - you try skating by with a plain-jane MSO you might land yourself in an VERY embarrassing situation with a customer calling you from a DMV (after a 4 hour wait) where he has just had your paperwork rejected because you decided to save a few bucks by not getting the right MCO form.
MCOs - Manufacturers Certificate of Origin:
MCOs are basically manufacturers titles. In many respects they are very similar forms but the MCO (certificate form) as prescribed by the AAMVA is the modern, up-to-date, "fancy" version of the manufacturers title that is accepted by all DMVs for all vehicles and vehicle components.
This is THE 50-State MCO form accepted at all DMVs in the US and worldwide for vehicles and vehicle components such as frames, engines, transmissions, etc
These Certificates of origin comply with THE highest standards for MCOs in the world. These are completely blank AAMVA-compliant, 50-State DMV-approved Boat Certificate of Origin.
