Uncle Dale has had this mailbox for many years and its always been on the covered front porch of the horse barn, He found an old stand from something and its always sat on that. There is no key, he covered the home with a small brass medallion from a dresser. Its been repainted at one time but nobody knows when. There is no rot or holes, just some scale rust here and there you can see in the pictures.
