A shame to get rid a piece of the home's history . Also , if that is how you still get your mail delivered, you will need to get a mailbox .
I would suggest the same as Tinyshoes said but I would recommend sealing with caulk. I would not pay someone to do something that I could do myself. I've learned how to do a lot of things because we didn't have a lot of money growing up, it makes you resourceful.
Hi Lillyz! What I would do, is screw the cover in place, fill the open space/cavity with foam insulation and then repair the interior wall. Stucco is tricky to repair, so that's why I would leave the old cover in place.
