Red to Green to GONE! Old post boxes on the way out?

AN POST is replacing a lot of its old post boxes. I hope they don't become careless about it.
Many of them are quite old and still bear the marks of former British monarchs (see attached photo). It is easy to find the insignia of Victoria & George V all over Ireland - long ago repainted from red to green.
I hope they remain as interesting reminders of one layer of our history.
