Beside the year of issue written on them, they are absolutely identical to the recent ones.

I can't remember for sure, but I think I have one 1908 and one 1912 5 rappen coins, and they are almost identical to the most recent ones. As a matter of fact, recent ones are considered variants of the older ones (the older ones are classified as KM26 in Krause catalog, while recent ones are KM26c). The most important difference is that the older ones are made by copper-nickel, while recent ones are aluminium-brass.

No, we're at a condo where there is a small Dutch enclave lol. I'm relaxing while my friends, who slept for the 2 entire days the trip last, are just walking somewhere.

Our inward route (not sure link will work) http://g.co/maps/3zhgt

It took one late afternoon evening and two entire days, with 2 overnight stops

What's happening with the clinched highway mapping site?

I have sent some stats, but I have not received an answer yet. I recently drove 1500km in Sweden, Denmark and Germany and want to put those roads on a personal map.

Apparently the world-known town of *******, Austria is determined to change its name:
http://www.corriere.it/esteri/12_apr...50c7f614.shtml

Most probable new name: "Fugging" or "Fuging".

EDIT: The Italian article includes this keen line, said by a local tourist guide: "Germans want to see Mozart's house in Salzburg; Americans are interested in locations from 'The sound of music', Robert Wise's movie; Japanese want to see Hitler's birthplace in Braunau; the English are only interested in *******."

F. I like that... . But there are other towns that won't change their name and makes me grinning, for example in Southern Italy the town of Polla, which is Spanish for dick; or Puta near Baku in Azerbaijan, which is slut.

Is 'congratulation' currently used in English referring to bdays? Happy birthday is more used.
I imagine a foreign trying to speak italian and saying "congratulazioni" in occasion of a birthday party. It would be very funny because it sounds like "congratulation for being still alive" The right italian word is auguri and congratulazioni is used in very different contests.

The Dutch line would say "gefeliciteerd met je verjaardag" literally translated "congratulations with your birthday" though "verjaardag" could be translated as "aging day" rather than birthday ("geboortedag").

Don't think it's a smart move. It means lose a lot of tourism-related income (that ends up in replacement signs ). It's not even a municipality so their residents don't even have this embarassing name in their papers. As CNLG said, there's plenty of places with porn names but *******, being English, it's funny for every nationalities.

You can say 'congratulations'. It's not wrong, but as you say 'Happy Birthday' is more common.

You also wouldn't say 'currently used' unless it was considered merely a sort of phase which wouldn't last long
