Specialty and collectible Florida license plates feature many different varieties, and you can find several different styles for your collection. Some examples available include:

Can you register your Florida collectible license plates?

In order for the collectible vintage plate to be considered antique, the motor vehicle must have been at least 30 years old and manufactured after 1945. Some of the collectible plates on eBay listings are labeled as "clear to register," meaning you might be able to register them with your own antique motor vehicle. They must meet antique requirements and can be used when you drive to car shows, service stations, and parades.

What conditions do vintage and collectible plates come in?

Some of the license tags are in virtually new condition, especially if they were only used a few times or kept in storage. If you receive Florida license plates that were used on commercial vehicles, ambulances, or buses, the tags will likely show signs of wear and tear due to use. Some of the collectible plates could have rust as a result of age, so they will look good hanging with other older license tags on an antique plate holder.

Do all license tags list counties instead of Sunshine State?

Almost all of Florida counties allow the owner to register their vehicles license plates displaying the county instead of the states logo. As a result, you may find some collectible vintage plates showing the name of the county, while others from the same period will show "Sunshine State."
