    I never fully appreciated the classic Standard selection boxes until recently.

    I remember one oddity which I always thought should not have had a spike - it was the "big" Size 2.5 Standard Traffic Light (not the much more common smaller Size 1.5 box item), which IIRC came with a black spike? (Crikey it was over 40 years ago lol).

    I even remember at the time thinking, "what business has a nice old fountain like a Traffic Light got having a ground spike?" :D
