“Chasing ’86’ closely for the top sale of the night were the similar black and white Victorian plates ‘95‘, which sold for $198,000.”

“At least two of the plates – the numbers 86 and 95 – could break previous auction price records for early Victorian number plates.

Number 95 in particular has particular symbolism in Chinese numerology, as the combination of 9 with 5 traditionally represents a man at the peak of his powers.

Number 86 has superior numeric value, as normally the lower the number the higher the price, while for ‘Get Smart’ TV show fans it is symbolic of Maxwell Smart as ‘Agent 86’.

Shannons are quoting a guiding range of $200,000-$280,000 for each of these plates, however there is every likelihood that these plates could eclipse that mark, as values are rising continually.”
