DE11 BOY and EA57 END are two of a sough-after set of personalised number plates to go up for auction at another auction held by the DVLA. It is being argued that these plates are the perfect accompaniment to someone who is a huge fan of the Only Fools and Horses’ character Derek ‘Del Boy’ Trotter or a huge EastEnders fan or someone local from the East End area who has a bit cash to spend.
These two registrations are two of many to be fought for, over the three day auction of personalised number plates.
With the reserves starting at £3,000 and £1,000 respectively, there is a huge amount of interest and commotion being stirred up over these two number plates. There are approximately 1,500 number plates being auctioned off at the Country House Hotel in Bishop’s Stortford, Hertfordshire.
Despite these two plates seeming the most popular, the star of the show is expected to be a plate reading 36 O. This plate is apparently perfect for a Ferrari enthusiast, and the reserve has been set at a whopping £10,000.
Damian Lawson, the DVLA Marketing Manager of Personalised Registrations, said, “These two plates are proving hugely popular with immense interest from potential buyers already surrounding them.”
“DE11 BOY stems from our hugely successful 11-series of registrations released for sale last year and while it is unsuitable to sit on a Reliant three-wheeler, it would look terrific on any car registered on our roads from March 1st this year.”
In total, the DVLA’s upcoming auction will consist of around 1,500 personalised number plates, chosen for those that offer an eclectic mixture which should suit all tastes and cast a wide net, attracting all types of bidders.
Some of these number plates include: 666 A (reserve – £3,000), ALF 44C (£400), A1 HAT (£1,000), BER 8A (£350), BO55 COE (£900), 10 CLS (£1,800), DE11 BOY (£3,000), DOG 70Y(£400), EA57 END (£1,000), GTR 5S (£400), LAW 80Y (£500), LAW 805S (£400), 811 LLY (£1,700), 1 MUC (£3,100), NAG 80Y (£400), 11 NSX (£450), 36 O (£10,000) ONE 80B (£450), OOH 848Y (£400),OUR 80B (£450), RAJ 88B (£400), RAG 70P (£500), RAV 11H (£400), SOL 41R (£350), UK51 NGH(£900), 1 WWF (£3,200).
