How to use "Shove-ha'penny" in context?
It was a time when people would go out on dates and a person would generally pay for the date. However, if the person was interested in the person they were dating, they would "shove a penny" into the person's date's pocket to help pay for the meal or date. It was generally seen as a sign of interest in the person and was something that was done between friends as well.
