The AKS was founded in 1979 by a small group of license plate collectors
who figured that it would be much easier to obtain a larger collector
by uniting in a group to do so by trade or other occasions. Our quarterly
issued full colour printed club magazine „Depesche“ offers
free trade, sale and query ads, informs about everything license plate
related around the world and provides useful information about the hobby
itself. Our members organise license plate swap meetings thoughout the
year, our anual general assemblying is organized by our first chairman
in October of each year. All meetings and other occasions are advertised
in the Depesche magazine and every member is invited to participate and
also organise a meet himself. Our swap meetings are the best and easiest
possibility to obtain plates for your own collection from every part of
the world due to the internationality of our members! The Automobile Registration
Plate Collectors Club united members from Germany, France, Italy, the
Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Poland, Switzerland, Austria, Great
Britain, Australia and the USA.
