Blank 1990s Iowa license plate (Astrographic Collection)
License Plates from the Astrographic Collection
For those familiar with the history of British Columbia license plates, Astrographic Industries Limited of Surrey (BC) was a license plate manufacturer that operated between 1984 and 2013 with major clients being the province of British Columbia, Yukon Territory and a number of municipal governments. The company also competed for contracts in other Canadian and US jurisdictions and produced numerous plates used in movies filmed in the Vancouver area.
With the closing of the Astrographic plate shop, this is a unique opportunity to acquire some of the prototype, specimen and props that previously could only be found on the wall of the facility: Shipping: $5.00 USD within Canada; $7.50 to the US; International, contact me ... (also contact me if you want expedited or tracking as this will also cost extra, as will combining multiple plates). In this auction is a blank 1990(s) Colorado license plate made of aluminum and measuring approximately 12x6 inches and is all screened. I am going to hazard a guess that this was manufactured by Astro in relation to a possible movie production in the Vancouver area ... but I am only guessing.
Condition of the license plate is as shown in the images above (click on each for a high res image). Certainly some unique and one-of-a-kind license plates that aren"t likely to come up for auction again. Don"t miss out.
Sale Price: US $9.99
