709-Ebay new-and-old-stuff Bahrain fake number license plate

In April 2018 Ebay seller new-and-old-stuff from South New Berlin, New York, USA (who is also rayfeb14) was trying to sell this fake Bahrain plate. He says it is used but it is not.

In probably the 1980s, a now deceased American collector was in Bahrain and had several plates like this made. 2 exactly like this, 1 with his name instead and 2 with the number 1 on them are just the ones that are known but there are believed to be 5 or 6 more..
This plate has the Arabic for Issa bin Salman Al Khalifa on it who was the previous ruler of Bahrain.

None of the plates of the rulers of Bahrain have had their names on them. In the 1940s and 1950s they had the Arabic for Bahrain on them but after that, the rulers have used plates with just the number 1 on them.

Always check that a plate is close to that particular country’s genuine plates. There are several websites like Francoplaque and Plateshack that have pictures of genuine plates as well as lots of photos on the www.
