A while back I posted a picture of a tanker dropping gas at a CONOCO station. The station had these pumps with something in the holders. I never could navigate the search program, possibly someone can and post the pictures.

Don't think it was for pricer sign and Jack is spot on, mostly had little advertising signs in it. Station owners had to put promo items in them and most just got tossed.
