Recent Site Updates


This page lists page updates recently made to the RicksPlates.com – Rick Kretschmer's License Plate Archives web site. 

This page was last updated on March 6, 2020. 

Latest noteworthy updates to this page, other than adding entries to the Page Updates section or updating photos in the Newly Added Plates section: 

  • January 24, 2018  –  Added a subsection for newly added plates for trade or sale. 
  • September 18, 2014  –  Revised the text of the Introduction section. 


The purpose of this page is to provide a place where visitors can find out what's new on the site without having to look at every page individually.  Every time I make a change to the site, I'll now also update this page to show the newest photos I've added, and to record the date and page that was updated or added. 

Below, I have listed by date each page that I've recently added or updated, with clickable links to each such page.  I'm listing only the past years' worth of page updates, figuring that anything older than that cannot possibly qualify as a "recent" change. 

Plate images newly added to this site

Shown below are some of the very newest plate photos I've added to the site.  These are subject to being updated often.  I'm trying to show no more than a month's worth of recent plate photos.
