Nah...those new 2Ps are plated steel (7.93g/cm3) these days; 7g!....much heavier than a alu key. :wink:

Lighter than old loose change, though, BITD when they really were copper, 8.96 g/cm3!
That old-school stuff was enormous. :shock:

All the best,

When was the last time you used a phone box?

I use them regularly, but they are all but disappearing from the rural areas.
