A "1 YAHOO" licence plate from Gregory Hoblit's supernatural drama Frequency. The licence plate adorned the front of Gordo Hersch's (Noah Emmerich) Mercedes-Benz, and was seen at the end of the film when a baseball smashed one of the car's headlights. Earlier in the film, a grown-up John Sullivan (Jim Caviezel) spoke to eight-year-old Gordo (Stephen Joffe) via a time-spanning radio link and told him to remember the word "Yahoo," enabling the adult Gordo to make his fortune.
The white metal New York licence plate features the text "1 YAHOO" picked out in blue paint, a red Statue of Liberty emblem on the left side, and four intentional screw holes. The plate exhibits minor marks and signs of cracking to the white finish. Dimensions: 15.5 cm x 30.5 cm x 0.1 cm (6¼" x 12" x¼")
Estimate: £800 - 1,200 M
Item size - 11.81" x 5.91" x 0.08" (30cm x 15.01cm x 0.2cm)
