Others will, I'm sure, correct me if I'm wrong but I believe that the Dutch, amoungst others, still use them?

I think that they are also still used in India & China?

I come across them from time to time when I am patching tubes for the bicycle co-op here and keep them for old time's sake, I have a few at home now ...
