JK Automater informed me that the 'STD-E 40' was a sort of spin-off of the 'STD 40'. To get better readings and higher accuracy, the electronic coin validator machines that were first introduced in the early 80's required tokens to be of a more homogenous shape. Therefore the ridges that could be seen in the earlier 'STD 40' were removed. Because of that I suspect that the E is a reference to the Electronic machines they could be used in.

Any further questions about their products can be sent to them. They are happy to help and have quite a bit of knowledge about their historic products.

That is wonderful information,  thanks very much.

I think the E is electronic machines too. :)
