Trying to find out what a brand new never mounted set of 1915 Oregon license plates are worth.

I wouldn't be surprised if they'd fetch close to $300.

Heck down here in Cal a old used Cal plate for the 30s thru the 50s gets more than that in used condition. Some of them well used. Must be a different market for Oregon plates.

I paid $400 for a near mint DMV clear 1915 California plates that are on our 15 roadster/pickup.

The one's I have are very mint Oregon plates like I mentioned never been mounted and not a blemish on them. I want to find some Cal 15 plates for my Roadster. A guy in LA has a set of real mint ones but he wants 700 for them. Sound like you made a pretty good deal on yours.

You should try and buy our veteran number plates, $220,000 for #97, I have a customer that comes in with #21 on a 1970's Benz, that would be up around the 1/4 mill.

Hi Frank, Boy those are more expensive than gold. I guess what you guys call veteran plates are the same as our DOM [ date of manufacture ] plates. How do you tell what year they were issued?

Richard, can't really, but if you can find old records you can get close, plates issued back then to a car which could be from any of the police stations in any town, so plates can be on the shelf for a long time, when issued, they can stay with the car it's whole life. For about the first 80 years, if the car is de'reged then the plates needed to be handed back in and destroyed, but for some time now they changed to a trading commodity bringing those big dollars for the very old numbers.
