You could edit the letter 'P' to make a 'D', the opposite to what the 'decimalizers' did in '71.

Oh I see, yes I could paint out the bottom part of the P and be left with a small capital D.

I made a few Wonders coin slots a few years ago out of Prince August metal, I think I may still some somewhere.
Hi Alan57, if you do find any would you be prepared to sell one? It will go to a good home. :D

I've made the odd part out of "Prince August metal" and it's easy to work with.
Due to its softness I've found that coating it afterwards, especially surfaces that will come into contact with other metal helps it not wear.

If you Google casting resin and search for those that claim to have a diamond hard finish you'll find two pack products. Give the inside of the slot where the coin will touch a generous coating. It might even be worth oversizing the hole and building it back up with the resin. It dries fairly quickly but doesn't truly go off for a day or so and if you're impatient you'll end up with a sticky surface.

Made the small ratchet part needed out of 3 Pinball target lifters , I used 3 to build up the thickness it needed , only a bit of grinding and one small hold drilled to take the spring , it worked after 1 minor filing .

what does everyone else think about this ? painted or back to natural ply?
Just a few more cabinet repairs/ regluing . and the Coin chute to suit old pennies and the coin housing
Thanks to Alan57 I have the correct coin slot on the way too.
