Doubt it. At any rate there's only a couple with significance and according to google they're 433 feet apart.

Probably not a few hundred beat up ones either.....

Only Google reference for pink mailbox and Oklahoma has one north of Pennsylvania ave and SW44 st OKC, and another somewhere in/near Honor Heights Muskogee. Maybe it has to do with the town of Pink OK ?

Maybe?

Think I may have it figured out. Will see if I can find some time to ride and check to see if I'm right. Hope I can find the time before someone else figures it out

That mailbox was featured in a Channel 9 TV show about Oklahoma a few years ago.

Google maps coordinates 35.260721,-97.119012

For what it's worth there was a feature on OKC Channel 9 about unusual town names in Oklahoma, the one about Pink had the Pink mailbox and the comment that it was the only indication you were in the town of Pink. I know I'm probably the only one that remembers that but at least 3 of you had it figured out, NoDirt4Me just got there first.
