Not sure how the original locks were retained ged8 I have seen quite a few variants, however, this was salvaged from a wrecked Bryans Tencup, it is a small metal block 1" high with two screw holes for fixing it to the internal side of the case and was used to retain the cam of the lock, it looks original and has traces of the 'Bryans blue' paint on it.

Yes, thanks agree, that looks like the one to fit the cash draw. Now I know what to look out for, great. The front door has me baffled, as my pic shows just drill holes that the lock bolt goes in, but did it have a slot cut into the side of the case when it was new? I think I have the right lock “Yale” with a flat key.

Here's the keep on a streamline mech door (same as above, but with the horizontal latch pin in place).

Often wondered what that little hole was for, now I know, thanks Mr pm

Maybe the 'butchered' slot could have been dug out over the two original screw holes for the keep block. :!?!:

Yes maybe but I can’t see how this keep would work with an ordinary lock with a bolt. I can see it works with a cam lock. The Yale lock I have on the front / Mec door is not a cam lock and I think it’s the right one as all the screw holes line up, the dia of the key hole is correct. This is my lock.

That's right, the metal keep is for a cam lock.
The bolt on your lock looks thicker than usual and the cross-head fixing screws aren't original. I wonder if it's been swapped. Is the bolt too short to project into the cabinet side? Does the rather rough hole in the cabinet side even line up with the bolt? !PUZZLED!
Could you post a front-on image of the game.
