Post Boxes- Not Just One But Three

After my last post in which I featured a Penfold Post Box Peter Roberts left a further comment giving me the challenge of finding a Fluted Post Box.....

Not being one to pass on a challenge today I went out on a Post Box hunt...
As with any challenge it is always better to exceed the challenge and achieve just that little bit extra....
Below I have posted images of what I found......

Original Challenge- Victoria Fluted Box No:- BH23 5D

Quite Rare Edward V111  No:- BH23 47

Close-Up of Edward V111 Door

George V1 Box  No:- BH23 42
Well there we have it ...... the result of a day spent post box hunting....
I promise that I won't post any more P/O Boxes..... Well maybe..!

Edward VIII is truly rare. Had Richard III been around, he'd be rare too, but Edward was never actually coronated. Is that the right term? My mom acquired "The Crowning" China pattern.

That is brilliant!!! If you are on FB you could post those images to LBSG and Postbox collection. Thge fact that you have added both the first partof the postcode and the subsequent digits make them even more valuable observations
eg #BH23 42

I think the term is simply 'Crowned'. He was never formally crowned at a Coronation... But I think that 'coronated' is as good as any other word Steve...

Thanks for the information Peter....
