Sorry, folks!! Work (and homework) got in the way of this for a bit.

Boy has been keeping a list and saving all the envelopes that the plates came in. However, he neglected to keep a list on the envelopes of what came in the package, and I wasn't able to reel in his excitement so that I could keep track of those that said "no need to reimburse" (for which I could never ever completely express my gratitude). I think I can sort it all out given some time based on pm's, posts and return addresses. If I get stuck you'll see a post here.

I will check with his list tonight while baking my pecan praline pumpkin pies. I should have an update this weekend.

Thanks again to all!!!

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

Skip,

I sent the plates listed in Posts #2 and #4. I also enclosed a note that I did not want the postage reimbursed.

We didn't want postage reimbursed either...But pie is another matter all together!

Hope it's going together well.

I sent the AZ and CA plates and no need to reimburse for postage. Reimbursement by pie is another thing all together.

I don't really want to buy them but I will pay for mailing. Post here or send me a pm if you feel the desire to help out a budding 8 year old Airstreamer get through school.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.
Dear Sir, If for some reason you fall short of all 50 states, pictures of the state plates missing are on line. Search: plates of all 50 states. The pictures are good,and printed in color look very real. Good luck.

The rarest of U.S. plates is probably the Washington D.C. license plate. Hawaii and Alaska plates are surprisingly easy to come by.

Just 'cuz I think it's cool to share this one, here's the UK plate my friend Jim sent me for you. It came as part of a package, so no worries on reimbursing postage, either from England or from me to you.

Jim owns a Land Rover, and the club he belongs to take them out off-roading for weekends to relax and get muddy. He said this plate is no longer legal, but I have no idea why. Since he had to get new plates, he was happy to help your sonís school project.

Iíll pm you once I get it in the mail so youíll know itís on its way.

Chris
