A friend just bought a set of 1969 license plates for his 1969 car. When it comes to registering, he has to send them to Kingston for verification of authenticity, and not a repro. It ends up that he is going to be into a few hundred dollars before all is said and done. Looks like he will be putting them on at a show and take them off when going home. Something to think about when buying old, year correct plates for your car.
