Depends on where in Europe the 45 was released (or pressed).British and 
Scandinavian records had inserts that were part of the record, but could 
easily be pushed out for jukebox use.

Or, in the early/mid 1950's, a triangular insert which was also part of 
the record. This type was also used on certain German jazz pressings at 
the time.

Later, German and French 45's always had big holes like in the US; I've 
seen both the British/ Scandinavian type and the US type on Dutch 45's.

In the early 1970's some British labels started to manufacture solid 
45's (except for the small hole); that was about the time when they 
introduced 33 rpm for some 7'' releases. But not all of the "solid" 7'' 
were 33's.
