Thanks heaps to DRAGON for supplying this document - a fantastic piece of literature for number plate nerds. :cool:

I recently came across some plate details from the "The Great Plate Auction" of 1985. I believe this auction was one of the first mass releases by the SA Government of numeric, jubilee and classic name series. The sale consisted of 329 lots, being some 400+ plates and was conducted by Jackman & Treloar on the 10th of October 1985.

I have a copy for auction book and it is quite interesting to see what was released at this time. Here is a list of some of the plates that were up for sale with final prices ranging from $200 to $11,000:

Numeric Series - 3, 6, 9, 14, 18, 26, 27, 35, 40, 46, 47, 48, 53, 54, 57, 60, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 69, 70, 72, 75, 79, 80, 82, 83, 84, 87, 89, 90, 92, 93, 95, 96, 99, 101, 111, 123, 222, 300, 400, 600, 666, 700, 777, 888, 1000, 1234, 2000, 2222, 2468, 6000, 7777, 8000, 8888, 11-111, 30-000, 33-333, 40-000, 44-444, 54-321, 55-555, 60-000, 70-000, 80-000, 90-000, 99-999, 100-000, 123-456, 222-222, 300-000, 444-444, 500-000, 555-555, 600-000, 654-321, 666-666, 700-000, 777-777, 800-000, 888-888, 900-000, 999-999, to name some of the more historic and distinctive numbers.
