What happens in Delaware ... stays in Delaware!

[source: Kovel's Komments] - A Delaware man sold the rights to his Delaware license plate, number 6, for a record $675,000! It is probably a record price for a U.S. license plate. Delaware drivers can keep the same plate number indefinitely, even sell them. The first plates were issued in 1909. Low numbers suggest the owner has been a Delaware resident for a long time. It is a status symbol and newcomers to the state buy them to show they have "arrived." Another single-digit plate sold for $186,500 fourteen years ago. Low numbers are so popular there is even a website to help you find one ( You can buy reproductions of the tags from the Delaware Historic Plate Company.
