The latest auction of DVLA's private registrations took place over three days on the 3rd,4th and 5th of June at Wychwood Park,Crewe,Cheshire.
1600 lots were included in the sale, although 276 failed to reach their reserve and were withdrawn from the sale. The top seller was 7 T which brought a winning bid of just £65,600.
This was quite disappointing when in the last auction 1 D brought £285,000. Similarly 3 O brought just £51,000 when 2 O brought £115,000 in March’s sale.
In general the number plates sold were down on the DVLA's auction estimate's which is a clear sign of the times.
