Event:  2017 Shannons Melbourne Late Summer Classic Auction

Date:  27 February 2017 @ 7pm

Location:  40 Corporate Drive, Heatherton, Victoria (new location!)

Eleven Victorian heritage plates were offered at this auction, with all selling under the hammer on the night.

The 3-digit results were strong, with all plates besides 419 achieving prices of $70,000 or more.  The poor result for 419 was likely due to the leading 4.  It must be said though, that $60,000 is still a great price for this plate considering prices just a year or two ago.

The 4-digit prices were all very strong, in particular 1177 which reached $45,000.

3 digit:

  • 419 – $60,000 (9 bids)
  • 548 – $70,500 (46 bids)
  • 671 – $72,000 (32 bids)
  • 897 – $70,000 (24 bids)

4 digit:

  • 1177 – $45,000 (24 bids)
  • 1993 – $39,000 (28 bids)
  • 2221 – $30,000 (14 bids)
  • 3686 – $31,000 (25 bids)

5 digit:

  • 55333 – $24,000 (18 bids)
  • 79660 – $11,000 (4 bids)
  • 82911 – $18,000 (17 bids)
