In early 2023 this page is under redevelopment.   It is sadly out of date as it stands, due to disposals that I have not deleted, or some plates that I have decided to keep.   I may divide this page into two... one for plates definitely open for sale, and another to show plates from outside Canada and the USA that I am keeping in my collection.  This has not yet happened, and along the way this page may seem to be in turmoil.  Last worked on January 15, 2023.
This page is best seen on your computer, not your phone!
