*N. B. The value is not always given exactly to a fraction, though near enough for the purpose of the tourist-aid it is the par value, exclusive of exchange. Thus the pound sterling, for instance, at the par of exchange, is worth $4 80 to $4 874. The best hard money for the tourist, is the English Sovereign, French Napoleon, and five franc pieces. These will pass for their full value in any part of the Continent; but the coins of other States had better be disposed of where they belong.
