In this section, I have scanned in a number of plates that I currently have for trade. As a tour through this website suggests, my main interests are rare or unusual porcelain plates of all types such as prestates, city & county plates, motorcycle plates, and dealer plates, as well as early Hawaii. I am particularly trying to build on my city plate collection, and would be very interested in trading for porcelain plates from such cities as Birmingham, Louisville, Tulsa, Pittsburgh, Alexandria, etc. If you are seriously interested in any of the plates below and have something for trade that you think I might be interested in, please click HERE to send me an e-mail.

1913 British Columbia Motorcycle (First Issue). This first issue B.C. motorcycle plate is very hard to come by in any condition. This one would rate good.
1915 Territory of Hawaii Automobile Tag (Hawaii County). Condition is g-vg on this hard to find item. Tag is approximately 2" x 2"
1916 Hawaii County Pre-Territorial plate. Condition is only fair on this plate, but it is a truly rare plate (approximately 15-20 known in collectors' hands) and is among the most desirable license plates from Hawaii.
1941 Hawaii Motorcycle plate. Good condition, with two extra holes. Additionally, the numbers on this plate appear to have been repainted, very possibly by the original owner, as the red on the 1941 plates was known to disappear in short order.
1911 New Brunswick (First Issue). This plate is an excellent example of a very rare plate. In 1911, the province only issued some 450 registrations, in pairs. Thus, only approximately 900 of these plates were ever made.
