Can I display an old tax disc on my classic car?

Is it permissible to display an old tax disc on a classic car? I have the complete set of original tax discs since purchasing the car new 36 years ago and would like to display the first one together with the one dating from the change to a personalised registration number.

The tax disc was abolished in 2014 and there is now no need to show it in your car (as it serves no official purpose. However there are no rules that prevent you from displaying an old disc in your car should you want to.
