Hello,

Does anyone here use a postal scale to ship their eBay items? I am looking into buying one and I was wondering if anyone here has any good recommendations for one that is accurate for relatively small and light weight packages but also won't break the bank price wise.

Please let me know your thoughts on the matter and please let me know if you have any questions for me. Thanks.
Rest in Peace

I went to Walmart and bought a kitchen scale that is accurate to 11 pounds. Works well for what I ship and was around $10-$12 if I remember correctly. Very accurate in the weighing of 1-2-3 ounce items as well. Probably 8" in diameter and easy to use. Comes with a lithium battery.

Does anyone have a good recommendation on an inexpensive one that measures the weights of coins to the nearest .01 gram?

I'm looking to replace my postal scale that dropped on the ground and broke last month ironically en route to traveling with me to weigh rolls as I got them from banks...

For shipping small packages I bought this American Weigh scale off of Amazon, needs no calibration and has worked very well.

For weighing the actual coin itself I use this Smart Weigh gram scale. It's not 100% accurate and I haven't find one yet that is unfortunately, but it's close enough for my needs. Be sure to get a calibration weight too, it takes a 100 gram weight.

Thanks, Johnathan55!

The second scale is exactly what I had in mind. As long as it is close to accurate, that's all I care.

As for a 100 gram weight, I just use half a roll of new nickels.
