No buyer for �4,500 town numberplate

A NUMBER plate which reads NA11 SEA won by a gambler in a casino has failed to attract any interest since being marketed in February.

A Staffordshire businessman hoped a proud Nailsea resident would snap up the unusual item, which is on sale for a cool �4,373.

Home improvement company magnate Nick Fellone, aged 45, won the plate in a poker game at the Dusk to Dawn casino in Nottingham where he regularly plays.

A fellow gambler put the plate in the kitty after running out of cash and after doing an internet search to check there was a town of that name, Nick accepted a retention certificate as part of his winnings.

He said: “I thought it might appeal to a company director or someone who lives in the town and is proud of their heritage.

“But so far I have had no offers, which is really disappointing and I’m now regretting my decision to take it.”

Anyone interested can buy the trophy at The Plate Market Ltd.
