Does anyone know what these codes mean?

I'm a volunteer archivist for the Internet Archive. I have a few dozen old school homosexual oriented zines from the 50's and 60's I'm archiving. Some have these little codes on the pages. Does anyone know what they mean or what they were used for?

Thanks

It’s the Illuminati. During the 50s and 60s, they convened in homosexual porno theatres and gay bars, so this was how they communicated venues to each other.

So I looked up the whole cover, which is...something, and reassuringly that issue is from 1977.

If our people had been stuck paying $1 for smut in 1957, I was prepared to forcefully denounce the capitalist heteropatriarchy or something

You speak for everyone? Lol. Calm down, boy. All gay people don't have to march in lockstep.

^ So annoying.

Anyway, I don't see the code for the first picture, where is it? I've seen similar things in Brazilian mags, so that's probably a universal code for gay shenanigans lol. Got me curious!
