Not worth the money Love the look as it matches copper accents on my house, but had first mailbox a few years and door came apart. Purchased a second one in hopes it was just a fluke but it started coming apart in less than a year. Wish I head read reviews before buying. October 24, 2014
Instant Upgrade We ordered the full mail post combo in black with the copper mailbox and finally got around to installing it 5 months later and wow am I glad we did! Fairly easy to install and got it perfectly level on the first try (recommend two people). The copper box is just beautiful and the whole set has a very substantial look and love that it's maintenance free. September 7, 2014
NICE! Dispelling some bad reviews with advice... The copper mailbox is gorgeous and well made. The brass pieces are sturdy. However, on my unit (bought 3 years ago) the spring clip at the top of the door, that holds it closed, was too tight. Fighting this clip put undue stress on the hinge. I loosened the spring clip with a screw driver - just bent it down a bit so easier to open and close. My door has had no problems at all. Also, the copper finish is as beautiful today as when I bought it. This is bare copper and WILL patina, almost immediately. Duh!! I sprayed mine with several coats of Incralac clear coat (specifically made for copper and brass). It truly is perfect, still today. If you like the shiny copper look (I do), you MUST clearcoat it with Incralac (google it). As for the post - it is plastic, for lack of better word, and okay quality. Sturdy enough, but definitely subject to some some fit and finish issues out of the box. But it went together fine, and has held up very well; my black post has not faded or warped. Overall I'm very pleased with this product, and have returned to Grandin road to buy another, since I'm moving next month and am not taking my beautiful mailbox with me - i need a new one! No hesitation to get this product again. August 23, 2014
Beautiful Mailbox I love this mailbox post. I got it with the newspaper holder, flower box and solar light cap and it looks so nice. Within 2 hours of installing it, neighbors were stopping by to tell us how much they liked it and one asked us where we got it. I am very happy with this purchase. June 30, 2014
Mailbox Post received many compliments from neighbors on mailbox post. It was easy to install because I just placed over existing wood post....looks really nice May 6, 2014
New Mailbox Post Installation was very easy and provided a great look when it was complete. May 5, 2014
poor product Your copper mailbox is terrible....after two years the door falls off and the lower part breaks apart...metal is too thin to support such heavy door. As a loyal customer I am very surprised you would continue to offer this product after so many poor reviews. April 26, 2014
Pretty but breaks easily We have tried (2) of these mailboxes. They are very pretty in the Copper but the weld at the bottom of the door near the hinge has broken on both of them. After it breaks and you try to open the door it bends ..then wont close because the copper is soft and now bent. Next the inside clasp broke off so I drilled and added screws. Now the handle is loose. It is a shame, as I'm now looking for a similar look but without that bottom door frame where they weld it. I'm thinking a one piece door will work better. If you buy it, assume it will break so be prepared. February 24, 2014

Answer: 
Thank you for your interest in Grandin Road. The copper can be cleaned by using these methods or buying a copper cleaner:

Salt, Vinegar, and Flour. Dissolve 1 teaspoon salt in 1 cup white vinegar. Add enough flour to make a paste. Apply the paste to copper and let sit for 15 minutes to 1 hour. Rinse with clean warm water, and polish dry.

Lemon and Salt or Baking Soda. Make a paste of lemon juice and salt, and rub with a soft cloth, rinse with water, and dry. Or use a slice of lemon sprinkled with baking soda. Rub copper with the lemon slice and rinse with water and dry. Vinegar and Salt. Pour vinegar over the surface Sprinkle salt over the acid and rub in the mixture. Rinse with warm water and polish dry.

Lemon Juice and Cream of Tartar. Make a paste of lemon juice and cream of tartar. Apply, leave on for 5 minutes, and then wash in warm water. Dry with a soft cloth.

I am curious what this post is made out of so that I can hopefully add the house number to the corbel section of the post. Do you have any numbers or plaques that would go with this mailbox post?
