    License plates

    Post by willowbilly3 on Sun Nov 20, 2011 4:52 am

    I have an eclectic collection and decided to try my hand at restoring a few. Some of these were really wadded up when I started and the 27 SD is the wrong shade of green.





    Here's a few others from my "collection"



    oops, sideways

    I like SD, Wyoming and Montana plates best and I am working on a SD run but probably won't get back past about 1917 or 1918 as they start getting real pricey. Right now I have all the 20s covered in decent old unrestored plates. I have a few 30s, 40s, 50s but a lot of missing years. I also like any of the Montana plates marked prison made or with the cow skull, weird crap like the Arizona copper and wartime plates made from aluminum and composite material. I only have one of those and it is Illinois. The bear plates are cool and I would love to have the baby bear motorcycle plates but they are rare as hell, I suppose due to the fact there aren't many motorcycles above the arctic circle,lol.

    The early Wyoming porcelain ones aren't any cheaper....I have a Wyoming one from '44 that is hardboard.

    I'm looking for the Montana and Wyoming hardboard plates. Any of the porcelain from the low population states are $$$.

    Mine is from a neighbor so I don't care to get rid of it (and I have more with the same number) but I will keep my eyes open for one or a box of cheapie WY ones.

    I found a run of Wyoming pairs with the car and truck having the same number, years 1960 into the mid 90s. A collector from Gillette bought them, longest run he had ever seen and had to have them.
    Thanks for keeping an eye out for more composite plates. Not looking for any bargain, will pay the going price.

    I think there is one in Cheyenne at a flea market for around 80 bucks....I can check on it for you sometime if you want. A few years ago at an auction there was a run that was about the same length but the plates started in the 20's and went into the 70's.....then they had the first three years wyoming had porclain with the state seal on them.....over 2 grand for a plate seemed expensive to me

    Cool. I'm not sure what one of those is worth but if they still have it they might come down a little.

    Cool, I think the oldest Texas set I have is 69. I also have new, un-used 70, 72, 74, 75. I have had some older ones but I think my Texas friends must have talked me out of them.

    Thanks guys. I can't take the credit for finding them, just having them. 4 years ago my x gf was going on a 4 day girls day out thing down around Friedricksburg Tx. I had 5 women looking for them on Something like a hundred mile long yard sale. Anyway I put my order in and they did good. If I ever get a 67 back on the road I'm good to go. The story i got was they blew past one yard sale at 40mph and one of the ladies saw a license plate so they just stop in the road and back up.
