Paul Raymond's number plate offered at Bonhams

Porn baron Paul Raymond's raunchy number plate is to auction at Bonhams' Goodwood Festival of Speed sale on June 24.

Raymond number plate
Paul Raymond (1925 - 2008) was the head of a pornographic empire

It reads "FU 2" and is expected to sell for around £140,000-180,000 ($198,422-255,114).

Tim Schofield of Bonhams told the Daily Star: "It is certainly something a bit different.

"In terms of interest, it will attract a lot of attention as it is instantly recognisable.

"Like an interesting Rolls-Royce which was once worth £25,000 and is now worth £250,000, there has always been a market for early or interesting plates and values have risen over the years."
