Oldest Box found with the fewest recorded finds?

#1 Post by smartieb » Mon Mar 09, 2015 9:44 am

Whilst out doing this winters Brentor Church Charity Walk came across a Abbots Way - Wheatear stamp. According to the book this was sited in April 1997 and only had 4 stamp finds in it -May 1997, 2 in Aug 14 & 1 Sept 14. Since it has the first 1997 stamp in it assume this is still the first book and finds are genuine? As there were no contact details i have been unable to contact the owner to confirm this.

Anyway out of interest i was wondering other boxes fellow letterboxers have come across that seem to have been out there for years but rarely come across.

A few weeks ago, found old box on the Cornish Coast, sited in the 80's, I being the first visitor for 15 years, second in 24 years!! Always keep your clues, you never know what gets lost over time!
