> The Royal Arsenal Coop used to give metal tokens that you collected until
'divvy day' when you took them in and received cash for them. The large oval
tuppenny one was just the right size to fit the gas meter and it was a
common thing for the gas man to be given real money in exchange for all the
tokens he found inside when he emptied the meter.
