The build is 96-97% exact. Instead of a missing baseplate, I used two plates. For the outdoor sign, I went with a wall element bearing the "Postal" logo (instead of three 1x4 bricks with a sticker in the original build).

This "Town" set no. 6362 'Post Office' came out in 1982, and it was LEGO's first model depicting a postal service.

From my understanding, the 'Post Office' never got released in the United States—at least, I hadn't found any American catalogs that would feature this model.

Curiously enough, LEGO never had an official Postal sub-theme and very few dedicated sets on the topic, all in the '80s. Since then, Postal Service became only a recurring accessory, with yellow mailboxes appearing in other Town sets: residential houses, train stations, etc.

In 2008, over 20 years later, LEGO restarted the Postal Service, with a new Mail Van and a cargo airplane models released. Most notably, LEGO designers reused the same logo, unparalleled longevity! (The only exception was a '98 mini-set no. 6420 'Mail Carrier,' featuring a mailbox with a different emblem). However, the color scheme changed slightly in LEGO City, with mailboxes now being red (while Postal vehicles remained yellow).

The 'Post Office' was a relatively small set, with 130 parts and one minifig. There's a tiny yellow mail truck, two mailboxes, six "letters" (1x2 tiles), and some 2x2 square bricks as "parcels."
