Guys, If you do have your I.D. tags re stamped because of originals are 
not up to the new restoration look ect.
save the old ones and keep them in a safe place. A few years ago at the 
Bonhams Auction at the Greenwich Conn, Concours, I heard the Conn.. 
State Police were looking into just that and wanted proof of the 
original plate if there was a new stamped one on the car. I also had an 
XKE coupe I restored at the shop, customer wanted the plate re newed ( 
stamped) for concours showing, had Todd Clarke do it ( fantastic job) 
Told the owner to keep original and he lost it ( never found it either) 
He went to sell the car and could have gotten a high dollar amount right 
from the first buyer , but they demanded the original plate as proof of 
originality. He lost the sale to that prospective buyer.So keep the 
original plates !
