GR5 isn't a regular postbox, it has historical and cultural significance. Historical England shows that there are 115,000 postboxes that exist in the UK (https://historicengland.org.uk/images-books/publications/royal-mail-post-boxes/heritage-agreement-for-royal-mail-post-boxes/). Whilst George V postboxes make up 15% of what has been installed, it still represents a significantly small number of postboxes that are installed (17,250 if my maths is correct). Whilst I may understand the argument that they are common, they are not as widespread compared to Queen Elizabeth Postboxes which accounts for 60% of postboxes (69,000).
I know there were discussions surrounding the acceptance of GR5 postboxes a while ago, but if there is an updated guidelines that specifically says that GR5 postboxes are no longer accepted, I am willing to accept it and not submit these any more.
