Expired U.S. license plates available for trade or sale (page 2, states K-N)

 

This page features expired license plates from U.S. states Kansas through North Dakota that I'm offering for trade or sale. 

New plates were last added on December 2, 2022.  This page was last updated on December 2, 2022. 

Latest noteworthy updates to this page, other than the addition and removal of plates in my trade box: 

  • July 12, 2021  –  Shifted the range of U.S. states with plates for trade or sale from Nebraska-Wyoming to Kansas-North Dakota, with Ohio-Wyoming now moved to a new page. 
  • November 6, 2018  –  Created this page of plates for trade or sale from U.S. states Nebraska to Wyoming by combining part of one web page and all of another. 

Introduction

These real, expired license plates are for collecting purposes only, and are not legal for street use on any vehicle, except possibly in some specific cases under state Year of Manufacture laws.  I make no claim that any of these license plates qualify for Year of Manufacture use. 

Please note that, while I do enjoy trades, trading usually only makes sense to me if you can offer something in trade that's on my want list.  Otherwise, there's no point.  I would only be trading plates I don't want for different plates I don't want.  If you have nothing on my want list, you're welcome to buy what you want instead. 

Please note that this is not some fancy e-commerce online store where you can put items in a "shopping cart" and then "check out" and pay, all in one visit.  You will need to make a list of the items you want, and then send that list and your zip code or country to me in an e-mail, so that I can verify that the plates you want are still available and give you a final price to pay and payment instructions. 

All plates shown are the actual plates you will receive, except possibly in a few cases that are specifically noted otherwise.  Click on any thumbnail image below to see a larger photo of that plate. 

(There's no sigificance to the different color prices.  It's just a way for me to keep better track of my inventory.)
