    Found this guy tonight. Took several photos to share and get some advice. I do not like my scale. It reads 3g. Cannot get grams in tenths. Who can recommend a better one for me to get on amazon? Let me know what you think about the coin.

    Whichever one you end up getting, choose one that comes with calibration weight(s). This way, you'll have it handy when it comes time for you to calibrate the scale.

    I've always had a question that bothers me. How do you know that the calibration weights themselves are reliable? LOL.

    A nickel should be 5 g.

    If you start questioning that...you will never be able to stop questioning anything. The very fabric of life will begin to unravel in front of you.

    Hahaha. You know, for electronics, you can (supposedly) rely on the UL label. For coins (again, supposedly), you can rely on the TPGs. And so forth. I was wondering if, for those calibration weights, can we look for a certification mark or something?

    Try putting a 1983 or later zinc penny on it. Just to see if it reads 3g also. It's probably rounding up from 2.5g.
