Part of a 'coin box anti-theft device'?

Quote from: inventor E. L. MCLELLAN
This invention relates to anti-theft devices for coin boxes and is particularly directed towards an anti-theft device for use in toll station telephone coin boxes to prevent unauthorized personnel from removing coins therefrom.

See US patent 3128037.
