I know the font isn't a precise match -- the U is without a foot, for one -- but I've yet to find a better match, so I'm playing with this one for now. Is there a better match known?

I'd be happy to put a link to your reproduction there at some point if you're willing.

I imagine it is the same as the Crich box (i'd better check!) - also a really good pic of the lintel signs from Crich, so if we think that 'real' police box signage should be represented, then I'm happy to oblige. As a side note, I also have the wording the original 1929 phone panel that was completely different.
