Old license plates

I have about fifty I suppose. Most are Indiana but I have some michigan, california and other states that I happened to get on a used car. I have 2 1951 plates plus the '52 tags and the '53 tags (from the Korean war era).

Then I have some plates from about 1960 up to the present in various states of condition.

Let me know what you are interested in and I will check to see if I have one.

After I find one we can talk about the price.

I just have one cali. It is white with the word california in script across the top. It is nice and clean. It came on my pristine 74 240d about 12 years ago. I will go out later and take another look at it if you are interested.

I believe it has red script and blue numerals. it is very clean.

I don't believe it has a year on it.

actually I looked and it appears that it is set up to take a sticker for the year as they are in Indiana.

CA stamped their plates with the year until about 1963 when they started making the last run of black and yellow plates. I think all the 63 -68 black and yellow plates had a 63 stamped on them, but I could be wrong on that. In 69 they went to the blue and yellow plates until 86. After 86 CA had white plates with blue letters/numbers and red "California" The post 86 white plates have been through several minor revisions and at this point have little or no value. The ones you describe with the scripted California are the plates they still issue today.

California License Plate History.

License Plates of California (United States)

California License Plates, New & Old Classic, California State License Plate -LICENSEPLATES.TV

CA Department of Motor Vehicles License Plate Introduction





Tom, What is the first four characters of that plate you have? It will give an indication of when it was issued.

Well, I estimate I have had it for at least ten years....I imagine it is about 15 years old minimum.
