What would be a good scale to get?

Post by TheCashier1812 » Thu Jun 24, 2021 1:10 am

The reason why I'm looking into getting a scale is because I want and would love to be able too find wrong planchet strikes.
Hard to tell by just looking at the coin, I want to be able to fully understand and respect the coin to get a general grasp of my quest into being a coin collector.

There are many scales out there I have a good kitchen scale for at home (Balance i 2600) expensive, and this pocket scale I carry to shows or coin stores (picture).
Then you will also need a Caliper, I purchased this one online

Any good scale that reads in grams to two decimal points is acceptable.
