In shopping for vintage Kentucky license plates, some characteristics should be taken into consideration. If the license plate is a true vintage, it should have really nice patina on both side of the plate.
Depending on what year you are looking for, a license plate will have a certain amount of numbers and or letters on it. A vintage Kentucky license plate for the year 1957 from Fayetteville has only six numbers on it. The numbers are separated after the third one by a dash.
However, the 1975 vintage Kentucky license plate from Fayetteville, has three letters, a dash and then three numbers. This might sound a little trite, but a buyer should know whether he or she is buying a real one or not.
