£100K + for D 50? I doubt it Infact I doubt it's worth half that
53 D is currently advertised for £80K but as we all know asking and getting are two different things..?
I suspect reverse D's may attract a premium from dealers as they know there is a certain person out there that likes adding them to his collection.
You might be right (and I defer to your expertise on values!) but usually 'forward' combinations are more valuable due to rarity, correct? Anyway, I also agree D 50 is highly unlikely to reach six figures.
Again, it all comes down to what something is worth to someone, beauty in the eyes of the beholder and all that. The thing with registration numbers is that, there is no given set of rules to set a price. There are guidelines and rules of thumbs, but you can't for example go to cityindex.co.uk and "check" what registration numbers are trading at today. In the November 2014 auction 25 O sold for £400,000. With all the extras, that comes up to £518,480.
There is a guy local to me who has a couple of 1 x 1. He paid in the region of £130,000 for one of them and the other cost him near enough £500,000. Personally, I would regard a like for like original issue to be of more worth than a DVLA auction issue. However that is again a rule of thumb on my end. There are always exceptions.

Could be a good or a bad plate but you have to admire the chutzpah for having it on your car.....
I've seen this on White Lund Ind. Estate in Morecambe - quite self deprecating judging by the characters standing next to it!

All this talk about I AN plates is very interesting, saw this last year in Spain, PB harbour.

There’s always some very exotic looking machinery around there.

1 OZ was parked next to on a Lambo,

I followed a white Transit tipper on the way into the office earlier, reg number F250GTO. Surely that plate is worth a few £££?

The value of F250 GTO will be heavily limited because it couldn’t go on a 250GTO. Except in circumstances so unlikely it’ll never happen.

Find 1 OZ to be of more interest. Issued by Belfast County Borough Council in May 1965.

Yes, I regularly see S250 GTO on a Land Rover. Always stands out to me.

1 STA

At first I assumed this was a DVLA auction plate but now I believe it to be an original issue. Devon 1924?

One would think, the owner would have a bit of pride and joy and replace the badge.

1 TSA is on a Bentley just down the road from me. I can’t figure out if he also owns 1 TNA as I always see it around here too on a Ferrari. Will get pics when a chance arrives.
