Wonder how long these old ones will last now the PO is in private hands. Up here they are removing the cast iron boxes on posts and replacing them with the new cheaper pressed tin and plastic ones. No doubt the cast iron ones have a decent scrap metal value. Quick profit today, don't think about the future.
Considering what our weather can do to the cast iron ones- the new ones aren't going to last long.

In the Channel Islands, they have listed them so they cannot be removed. Apparently they were starting to disappear at an alarming rate, replaced by modern ones. I doubt any old ones would be scrapped, there is a strong salvage market for old post boxes with some fetching hundreds of pounds.
