Royal Mail Pillar Box Pin Badge - First National Standard - 2010 - NEW
1 in stock.
A beautifully detailed, long lasting, handmade pewter pin badge of the First National Standard pillar box. With a secure 'clutch and pin' fastening, this pin badge is perfect for attaching to your hat or lapels.
Includes a little card inside the box which reads - "Historically, Post Office district surveyors were responsible for the design of our pillar boxes, but in 1859 it was decided that there should be a national standard design. Between 1859 and 1866, Cochrane & Co cast two sizes. The door was hinged at the right, which has remained the case ever since, with a wire guard inside. Although very few are still in service, five of the larger and ten of the smaller boxes remain."
Condition - NEW (comes in a little black gift box with removable picture sleeve)
