    We have owned this post office mail box for a very very very long time.
    It came out of the original Tracyton, Wa, post office building (the new building is across the street). What we have heard is that it is pre world war 2.

    It is approx 4 feet high, 2 feet wide, and 14 inches deep.
    We do have several of the doors loose in the unit. Also there is a very faint manufactor's markings from Indiana on the top. The hand writing on the side looks like something USPS later wrote to cataloge the item when it was donated/sold off to the public.

    Thank you.
    Jeremy Blum.

      Sorry, but CW members don't do evaluations. You should consult an expert on vintage postboxes or look online for similar postboxes which are being auctioned off.

      Oh, my apologies. I saw the ebay link as well so I guess that left me confused. Do I need to remove the post?
    3. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 5 years ago
      No, you don't have to remove the post - just edit it. We can post eBay or other informative reference links on an object, but we ourselves aren't allowed to give valuations or buy and sell.
