I gather that being porcelain and having no year, they're very early plates. Early Kansas plates had no year on them either, but they don't cost millions. :-)

Those are actually reproduction plates, the 2.4m is only for the right to display the number. That number was issued in 1910 when New South Wales first began issuing number plates, N.S.W. plates have never had the year on them.

Single digit Delaware plates have sold in the heavy six-figures and I thought even that was nuts, but this one tops them by a good bit.

It's an investment class thing now, though. They hold them knowing they'll likely get that much or more back someday.

Fred....Are you being an 'opportunist'????

Don't know what an opportunist is but it sounds like you are talking about tuning an Oppor.

Oppor is an IT company in Overland Park KS which is only 216 miles from Parkerfield.

Wondering if Steve can help. He is good at tuning!
