If you've got a passion for plates, you've come to the right place.

We're collectors just like you, and we're always out there hunting for rare, high quality or otherwise exceptional plates.

Though we offer plates that span the history of U.S. motoring, we have a special fondness for 1928 to 1932 vintages.

Our collection is always changing so we hope you'll come back often.

All the best - GAP!

One Auction, Seven Hours, 150 License Plates & A Coveted 1931 Haiti Treasure

On a beautiful Saturday morning in Elgin, Illinois, about 40 license plate scavengers attended the Damisch estate auction of about 425 lots of license plates....the entire event was professionally managed by the Bunte Auction House...plate lots were well-displayed, the auction room was comfortable and spacious, and food service was available...starting promptly at 10:00 am, the auction ran for almost seven hours, much to the displeasure of my Plate Princess, who took several 'shopping breaks ' of her own to nearby malls!...we were 'successful' in winning about 150 plates, most within our prefered range of 1927-1931 vintages...one of our personally coveted plates included a 1931 Haiti treasure...all in all, a great way to spend the day!
