Rated 5 out of 5 by BuckeyeSue Old mailbox
Hey folks. Just read all the awful reviews. We got our mailbox for a gift in 1995 and my husband put it up the following spring of 1996, where it remained in all it's glory until some thief came along and ripped it right off our stand! You know the old saying "they don't make them like they use to" well from the sounds of your reviews that's the case with the mailbox. Ours looked great . Yes there was some fading but that's to be expected after 17 years being out in the elements 24/7, 365 days a year and we don't live in Florida. My husband wants a new one but I'm not sure now.

Was considering ordering a new one with hope that they improved the finish. Apparently this is not the case. We have had ours 6 years and it has been nicknamed the "ghost fish" mail box. The paint was 50% gone by the 10th month. We considered using a marine poly like another customer mentioned they had. I think for the money it should already be done for me. Don't think I will waste my money again. It would be nice if someone would actually read these reviews and care enough to fix the problem. (I won't hold my breath).

Simply put. It peeled and fell apart in no time. Wonderful idea. I'm thinking a dead fish would last longer outside than this thing did. Zero durability. The finish pretty much washed right off after just one season. Even their zinc lag bolts rusted! This thing is one year old now. I posted a picture of it with this review.

I purchased this item and after installing it I had people stopping to take pictures. But after the first year I could tell the paint on the fish wasn't going to hold up. Even the paint on the metal mailbox portion has cracked and flaked. After 2 years it looks terrible.
