Well, strictly speaking, not the car but the Registration Mark. At various times the actual car has looked like this:-
And now, in 2017, after all this history, it has gone. Having been in the ownership of West Mercia Constabulary for over a Hundred Years, the Registration Mark has been sold.
At least it must have sold for a fortune, a mark like that with its history, must be really valuable. Right?
It was placed for a sale with a well-respected auction house who put a guide price of £175,000 on it. Independent valuations suggested a sale value of £500,000, or possibly more. Index number AG1, which is similar but does not have the same history and associations, is currently valued at £500,000. Predictions are that the value would only increase, possibly to as much as £700,000. Other sources suggest that the Guide Price may have been as high as £250,000.
So, apart from the actual issue of selling the family jewels which I am never in favour of, all is looking good. Right? What could possibly go wrong?
