Recent garage sale find. Double US post office mail door. I have about 50 single doors but have never seen a double. Banks are made from the now obsolete doors. They converted to doors using keys instead of the combo lock. I love the patina on this door and intend to replace the glass and use it for a picture frame.

    What a novel idea, perhaps even some military pictures?

    Sure I new the reason. I made 20 banks with PO doors I had. Worked out all the combos and gave them to my inlaws outlaws and a few friends. Still have about 50 doors but not as good looking as this one. But this one will make a great picture frame.
