Expired license plates available for trade or sale (non-U.S.)

 

This page features expired license plates from outside the 50 United States that I'm offering for trade or sale.  This includes plates from U.S. terrtories, Canada, and other countries and territories, and also U.S. Forces plates issued to members of the U.S. military while stationed overseas. 

New plates were last added on July 4, 2020.  This page was last updated on May 27, 2022. 

Latest noteworthy updates to this page, other than the addition and removal of plates in my trade box: 

  • July 4, 2020  –  Added on-page clickable links for each geographic region. 
  • June 12, 2020  –  Elimiated the separate section for U.S. territory plates, and instead included them in the appropriate geographic section. 

Introduction

These real, expired license plates are for collecting purposes only, and are not legal for street use on any vehicle, except possibly in some specific cases under state Year of Manufacture laws.  I make no claim that any of these license plates qualify for Year of Manufacture use. 

Please note that, while I do enjoy trades, trading usually only makes sense to me if you can offer something in trade that's on my want list.  Otherwise, there's no point.  I would only be trading plates I don't want for different plates I don't want.  If you have nothing on my want list, you're welcome to buy what you want instead. 

Please note that this is not some fancy e-commerce online store where you can put items in a "shopping cart" and then "check out" and pay, all in one visit.  You will need to make a list of the items you want, and then send that list and your zip code or country to me in an e-mail, so that I can verify that the plates you want are still available and give you a final price to pay and payment instructions. 

All plates shown are the actual plates you will receive, except possibly in a few cases that are specifically noted otherwise.  Click on any thumbnail image below to see a larger photo of that plate. 

(There's no significance to the different color prices.  It's just a way for me to keep better track of my inventory.)
