DOVER (AP) —Delaware drivers will soon be able to reserve a retro, five-digit license plate number from the Division of Motor Vehicles.
Starting Thursday, a limited number of plates will be available for purchase at all DMV locations on a first-come, first-served basis. The five-digit plates are available seasonally each year.
Drivers can buy stainless steel or porcelain plates made by the Delaware Historic Plate Company for $110, plus fees.
Drivers who reserve the plates must give up their current number.
License plates with low numbers are coveted by collectors. The interest is a result of the state's vehicle-registration rules, which allow for license numbers to be transferred and passed down through generations.
