What does this phrase mean?  As in, for example:
You wouldn’t want to be dead for quids, written after a congratulatory note.  And how long has it been around?

Edit:  A small champagne would be nice.  (I get one of me eddicks if I have too much of the stuff).  I’ve reached treble figures.

And with your very next comment you’ll get your third box!  (Sorry, no idea about the quids.)

Rummaging around the net, I get the impression that it means “Life is so good, I [or you, depending on the phrasing] wouldn’t agree to be dead even if somebody paid me [you] to be.”

Another quids phrase, expressing satisfaction for having turned a tidy profit: quids in!
