Outdated recipe quantity - "a can of coconut"

My MIL (85 and going strong) was recently stumped by one of her old recipes which called for a can of coconut. I dimly remember it being packed in cans when I was a kid. Does anyone remember how much a can held?

      Thanks! I hadn't seen it in cans for a long time indeed.
