Iowa Undated (2000) Vanity License Plate - Linn County - ALVA305
“Excellent+ as per ALPCA guidelines.”
First of all this plate complies with Ebay’s rules since it has expired over 3 years ago (both year AND month are considered) and is not a design that can currently be used on the road. This is sold for collection, display or craft purposes only, not for a vehicle.
Secondly, this IS the plate that you will receive – not one with a different serial number or “similar to” the one scanned.
This is an undated 2000 passenger vanity base (all flat). The condition is Excellent+, refer to the picture. It is from Linn County - Cedar Rapids is the county seat. I believe that ALVA was Thomas Edison"s middle name.
What man cave, bar or diva den would be complete without a City & Farm vanity plate on the wall?
You might ask why are Iowa plates rather difficult to find: (1) the population base is rather small at 3.0 million (2) there are 1050 vehicles registered per 1,000 residents (3) they issue plates in pairs (4) therefore Iowa plates are only 1.64% of the plates issued in the US each year. Additionally residents of Iowa have a tendency to not move out of state. So unless you are in Iowa or one the bordering states then you just do not see them on the road with much degree or regularity.
Shipping to the US is either $3.90 for a first class package or $5.60 for priority mail. Yes, I will combine multiple winnings into one package. I will ship worldwide; natch the postage will be not the same.
If you have any questions or comments just contact me.
I am retired and ship PDQ when your payment arrives. I prefer PayPal.
The first plate that I sold on Ebay was on 12-17-96, so I have been around the block a time or two.
