My point is that people were dismissive of the registration when I mentioned it and it could well become the most expensive in history! Doesn't sound like people on here know as much as you seem to suggest!
Furthermore, AB11 DAB was on the market with the DVLA for over a year (and not purchased) - using your reasoning it would be because people did not want it and it is 'crap' - I would not be surprised if this 'crap' goes on to sell for tens if not hundreds of thousands too!
Moreover, if a plate that requires a bolt and has missing letters makes 400k - why should H15 LDN (for instance) make any less?

I can show you HUNDREDS - have you heard of facebook or twitter?!

Also, you always resort to this petty childish line - why not point out the weaknesses in my reasoning instead?

this forum and pistonheads think AB11 DHB is "crap" and "chav", yet it is likely to become the most expensive plate in UK history!
People do not have to follow you back on twitter - I have more followers than the people I am following! :roll:

You cannot show us anyone on any forum that thinks as you do about your numbers, the challenge was simple enough.........

Sell it to Bold Reg for 30K then I bet he wouldn't go anywhere near it!

Dealers don't buy into stock as you know

I would think any dealer who was offered a £
50k number for half price would IF they thought it had the potential to sell. I thought all dealers bought numbers into stock if they saw a good profit in it?

The dealers do (in rare circumstances) buy into stock. However, they will be looking to spend a few hundred pounds on something that they will then market for 20k (as we have seen in the T37 HER example). They know that most people will not accept that amount for such plates and so (to save face) they claim not to buy into stock as a company policy. :lol:

to clarify, he said that he could see it selling for that amount. at the end of the day, it is IMPOSSIBLE to know in advance how much a plate will sell for. They are NOT like houses or a TV in that respect. Much more like art ... We have seen countless examples of this at the DVLA auctions and most recently with this number AB11 DHB.

I am sure that if the original buyer came on here over a year ago and said he wanted 300k for it he would have been ripped to pieces. But ultimately that is how much he may well get for it ...

Faz please stop speculating how we run our business (and the same applies to other dealers). We have never bought a reg for a couple of hundred and sold for an amount you imply.

We do buy in registrations from private individuals and so do other dealers but of course we have to know they will make a profit.

No offence intended.
It is impossible to "know" that a plate will make a profit (unless you have a buyer already lined up!) ...
Dealers rarely buy into stock. I am sure if CR, ******* et al were offered AB11 DHB to buy into stock they would have said "No!". All I am saying is that what dealers do and do not buy into stock is not necessarily a way to measure a plate's potential value.

Dealers are risk averse and hence will likely only buy single single registrations (and similar "dateless" ones) into stock for LOW prices ...
This is not speculation - anyone can confirm this by looking at what stock plates dealers currently hold! It's not rocket science.
