Not only American coinage and not only copper coins. I hate
this rusty smell. Even soap does not always help.

Not language related, but smell related (might be
interesting to read for you, Geoff): Do you know Patrick
Süskind's "Das Parfum" (The Perfume)? The story takes place
in France during the reign of Louis XIV. The protagonist,
Jean-Baptiste Grenouille, a bastard, born by a market woman,
has no own body odour, but can smell a thousand times better
than ordinary people -- he is a genius in a way, but his
character is absolutely absurd, he is totally crazy and very
cruel. Grenouille's master plan is to brew a truely vicious
perfume made from the body odour of 24 (26?) virgins that
makes people love him although he's the personified evil.
I found this book quite entertaining, but since we had to
read it in class two years ago, many people didn't like it.
