Our Dexter Classic Mailbox is made of heavy, 3/16" thick steel, and features the word "POST" on either side of the mailbox. Its hand crafted steel plate assembly will hold up to anything while providing an elegant and attractive addition to any home. It is 8 ½” wide, 22” deep and 12 ½” tall. Please scroll through the pictures to see more angles.

We build and deliver this mailbox in clean raw hot rolled steel. Much like the grain in wood, this dark steel finish comes with some variety of heat marks from the raw steel cooling in the steel mill. Most people let this mailbox develop a handsome rust patina over time. The pictures show it at the tail end of this process as well as the raw steel look as we deliver it. If you’d like it can also be painted the color of your choice, powder coated or clear coated. Just like any other outdoor product, these finishes will require maintenance over time. Clear coating may or may not be a satisfactory finish depending on your climate and maintenance schedule. We have more information available about speeding the rusting patina as well as slowing it down. If you are interested in having your mailbox customized with your house numbers, please see the Dexter Custom Mailbox

LOCKING: We offer our Dexter series in NON-LOCKING and LOCKING versions. The Locking option adds a door behind the main front door with a slot at the top.

POSTS: We offer two types of STEEL POSTS for mounting - please choose from the dropdown menu above.

Option 1: Set in Concrete -- This option allows you to set the post into concrete up to 18 inches. The entire length of the post is 60 inches. The post comes with a mounting plate that will align with the pre-cut holes in the Dexter mailbox. Hardware is included.

Option 2: Existing Footing -- This option is 42″ long and comes with a bolt plate for mounting to an existing footing or pavement. Hardware is included.

Additionally, we offer either of these posts with custom plate steel address number plaques attached. Just look for our separate “Post Numbers” listing.

Please allow 2-3 weeks fabrication time. Upon completion, we will send you shipping notification and tracking information.


As with all of our products, the raw steel will eventually develop a brown patina over time with natural weathering. The rate at which this rusting happens varies with exposure to the elements and your particular climate. You will have the option of painting or powder coating your mailbox if you choose (we do not currently offer either of these services). For more information about speeding up the rusting process, painting, or sealing your mailbox, please go here.

Please note: the first pictures show a mailbox that has already rusted. When your mailbox arrives, it will be dark grey raw steel (see the later picture).
