You say coinweights. Are these a standard weight for a certain coin?
Like used to tell if coin is real? Or used to weigh blanks/planchettes with?
Yes to the first question. Maybe, sometimes, to the second as well. (?)
(Side note: the glass weight shown in that article is neat. I did not know they existed.)
They were used to check the correct weight of mainly gold and silver coins on a balance scale, to check if they were genuine.
Here are some pictured on Tony Clayton's site, who is a member of CT.
No not the weight in pounds but the weight to see if it matched the value £3-12s
