Edward VIII post box, Ombersley Road, Worcester
Edward VIII reigned for less than a year (in 1936) and had abdicated before his coronation could take place. As a result there are very few physical reminders of his reign which can be discovered by the public. No coins were issued, and the main survivors seem to be his postage stamps, and some Royal Mail post boxes bearing his Royal Cipher and crown. There are believed to be only 200 or less of these in the whole of the UK, so they are very rare. This one is outside Ombersley Road Post Office, on the corner of Ombersley Road and Vine Street. A nice touch is the gold lining of the crown and cipher. For a closer view of these please see:- SO8457 : Edward VIII post box (detail), Ombersley Road, Worcester.
