Great Michigan/Detroit History-Restored License Plate Collection for Sale 1915-1970

Recommended Posts

I have professionally restored a collection of Michigan license plates dating from 1915-1970. All plates have been bead blasted and lacking dents, extra holes, damage and the like. This collection is rare. All plates are as close to the original colors as they possibly can be. I have an information sheet I can email explaining the collection. I will not break this collection up into singles, decades or the like. I will also throw in a '67 cycle plate, 1938 WWI Veteran's plate and a Historic Vehicle plate at no cost. Beautiful, rare, historic, neat but needs a good home, bar, or restaurant. See attached photos (30s, 50s and 60s not shown) or go to my website for other works of mine: www.classicplaterestoration.com. Contact can be made through the website as well. Asking $2,800.00 but willing to negotiate. Ask for Barn.

No lots of inquiries but no solid bites or they want it for dirt cheap! Thanks for checking Bob!

Unfortunately you live in a very economically depressed area. I have a substantial personal car collection and most of them were purchased in the Detroit area. It seems there is no money in the area for toys and therefore prices have tumbled. Good luck, Wayne

I suspect your collection is unique, as most license plate collectors focus on plates that are original. I'm impressed with your restoration talent. I don't think I've seen finer work.
