Only one bid was submitted for the “BE 11” license plate at the online auction. The number of schnapps changed hands for the starting bid.
The license plate “BE 11” was auctioned on the Internet.
It was worth 50,000 francs to someone.
A comparatively low price.
The «BE 11» license plate has had a new owner since Sunday evening. Until yesterday, the schnapps number was auctioned on the Internet. 50,000 francs were paid for it – this is the starting bid. Stefan Hotan, President of the Swiss license plates interest group (IGSK), had opposite the “Berner Zeitung” calculated with an amount of 80,000 to over 100,000. The IGSK speaks of a “miracle” in view of the low purchase price.
Highest bid over 230,000 francs
It is not uncommon for low license plates to be auctioned for exorbitant prices. With 50,000 francs, “BE 11” made it to sixth place among the auctioned Bernese license plates. A sign from Zug has reached the highest amount in Switzerland to date: In 2018, one person was willing to let 233,000 francs jump for “ZG 10”. In second place is “VS 1”, which was auctioned for 160,100 a year earlier. Third place went to “ZH 987” for 152,400 francs. The most expensive license plate from the Canton of Bern to date is in fourth place: someone left 151,000 francs for “BE 5”.
As the «Berner Zeitung» writes, various other Bern license plates are currently being offered for sale. “BE 13” is currently available on Tutti for 149,500 francs and “BE 30” is available for 100,000 francs on Ricardo.
