Taking Licenses

Just about anything seems to be available on eBay, and in trolling through the listings, we found two Nevada legislative license plates for sale.

A 1982 “STATE SENATOR 1” and a 1987 “STATE SENATOR 11” plate are available. At press time, the 1982 plate—which would appear to be the better collectible—was drawing a price of only $15.50 after four bids while the 1987 plate had no bids, but four people are “watching” it. It has a posted price of $59.99.

We tried to determine whose plates they were, but were unable to reach Legislative Counsel Bureau director Rick Combs. The 1982 plate may have belonged to Floyd Lamb, who then had served in the Senate since 1956 from two different counties. Plate numbers were assigned by seniority.
