Curious if they could check it by weighing something against a known weight.
For instance a Lincoln wheat cent weighs 3.1 grams. If he weighed a number of them and they were 3.1 grams would that qualify?

:eureka:

"scales" usually include 2 'weights' for checking/calibrating the unit....

FYI,.....
you can do 3 (three) 'weight calibrations' with the 2 supplied 5g & 10g 'weights'.....

1 @ 5g, 1 @ 10g,.....& 1 @ 15g.
