Are you looking to get authentic used ones? Custom replicas? Ebay is probably a good place to start.

authentic would be better, i found one site that sells used plates from germany, they said the seal is damaged but you can also buy new seals for $6 from the same site. i will check out ebay though.

I bought mine used from a seller on Ebay a few months ago. It's good to find an auction with photos of the actual plate so you can see what condition it's in. Like you said, you probably will need to buy a new state seal if you want it to look complete, as I believe to be sold the real one must be removed.

I managed to luck out and come across one with a pretty good number which I bought You can see the replica state seal is a little bit smaller than the real one was on mine, but it still looks good.



Sorry I can't help with advice for any other sites to get them from.

Mine were shipped from Germany without a problem. You never know for sure when it comes to customs though.
