Welcome to the latest blog post to feature one of our stock personalised number plates. Today we are having a closer look at the cherished registration 17 CA.
CA registrations were originally issued in Denbighshire, north-east Wales between 1904 and 1927. The local licensing authority most likely started with the introduction of CA 1 and worked through the range in numerical order until they reached CA 9999.
The reverse series of CA registrations was not used for natural licensing purposes (numbers before letters) meaning that DVLA can offer the combination for sale to interested bidders. The personalised registration 1 CA was sold at auction in March 1996 and achieved a hammer price of £10,000. If 1 CA was offered for sale today on the open market, I would expect an asking price at least ten times higher than the original sale price. As it happens, CA 1 is currently listed for sale with the UK’s largest private number plate dealer. In case you are wondering, the asking price is just over half a million pounds.
The series of numbers from 1 to 31 always attract premium prices when they feature on short, dateless number plates. This is owing to the fact that your birthday falls on one of these numbers. It may also be the reason behind your choice of lottery numbers and could be considered to be your lucky number. For that reason 17 CA would be ideal for Craig Anderson or Chloe Adams born on the 17th day of the month.
The personalised number plate 17 CA is available for sale direct from Simply Registrations at an all-inclusive price of £18,000. It can also be purchased from other number plate dealers, although the price may be slightly higher to enable the supplying company to earn a sales commission. The vast majority of number plate transfers can now be completed online, so 17 CA could be on your car in less than 24 hours. If you have any questions regarding the purchase or transfer of this cherished registration, please call James on 0113 288 7553.
