The NSW heritage number plate ‘104‘ is one of the lowest 3 digit plates on issue.
It was first issued in 1911 and adorned a Talbot 20-25 owned by Mr John Paul of Wolseley Road, Point Piper.
The plate was auctioned in 2009 at the Shannons Sydney Spring Classic Vehicle Auction where it sold for $167,000.
Shannons had set a guide of $135,000-$160,000 on the plate, so the price of $167,000 could certainly be considered a good result.
Unlike many low heritage plates which are attached to Ferraris and Bentleys, this plate is currently attached to a humble Aussie ute.

“The plate is believed to be the numerically lowest 100-series Heritage plate to come to auction for 26 years.”
