To clarify, these were sold as a pair, i.e. $200,000 for both 64 and 65.

$100k is a lot of money for a 2 digit plate in SA.

A pair of sequential numbers is worth a premium though. It doesn't necessarily mean that each number on its own is worth $100K. That's why they were offered as a pair.

I don't think they brought a premium being sold together.

82 and 87 sold seperately for close enough to $100k each.

It's possible that 64 may have gone for more that $100k if offered by itself.

But then again I think the 80s plate had more Asian buyer appeal.

Also the young bloke who bought 64 and 65 didn't bid on GP64 so having both 64s wasn't a big deal to him as some had suggested.

Funny enough I actually saw the PO with 64 on his car in Adelaide CBD after the auction

And the guy who has 86 for sake for 80/85k hasn't sold it. Either way it's crazy money for a number plate.

I've been to a few NSW plate auctions and its my perception that plate buyers know exactly what they want and what they are prepared to pay, well ahead of the auction. Its not like 'normal' auctions where people sometimes buy on a whim. 

People who have a spare hundred thousand cash to spend on a number plate, usually have their ducks ina row.

There are a number of ways to structure it, but both the vendor and auctioneer- who've more auction experience than I've had hot dinners- were pleased with the conclusion to set it up this way. There we a number of options all of which we considered at length.

We've established a new benchmark with four examples to back it up; this is the take-out.

Interestingly having sold four 2-digits we swelled the ranks of owners by nil: buyers for 2 were existing owners, 1 owner selling and a new owner with a consecutive set joining the "36 Club"  ie the 36 owners that hold the 2-digit plates, on my numbers.....

Now off to follow up with a few calls on the remaining lots.....

Cheers

Hi Stewart, hope you didn't take my comment as critisism about how you ran the day.

You pulled together a professional event.

Would be good to see Transport SA give you the op to run their next Plate Auction.
