In the previous photo, you can see one token which says "Петроградский" - this is the designation of the Petrogradsky Island and the region of the islands:

Петроградский остров - token: denomination 15 kopecks

These tokens were used to accept empty glass jars. The word "РАЙПИЩЕТОРГ" means "regional food trade"
