(Universal, 1985) An original screen-used prop distressed mailbox from Back to the Future. Consisting of sheet metal hand lettered “Peabody” twice in black paint over beige and green splatter with an attached metal latch and mailbox flag, the prop has been studio distressed with dents and “buck shot” holes. The mailbox is prominently seen on screen in the memorable sequence when Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox), having just arrived in the year 1955, speeds the DeLorean away from the Peabody farm as the patriarch of the family fires a shotgun at him. A special effect is used wherein the family mailbox explodes, as if from the impact of the shotgun blast. This prop survives as a testament of this well-remembered moment from this iconic film. Measuring 35.25”x23”, the prop is in very good condition, exhibiting only minor oxidation besides the intentional distress.
