The weights of a penny depends on their dates.

Indian Head pennies dated 1864 to 1909 weigh 3.11 grams.

The Lincoln, Wheat Ears Reverse penny weighs 3.11 grams except for steel cents made only in 1943 that weigh 2.67 grams.

The Lincoln, Memorial Reverse penny (1959 to mid 1982) weighs 3.11 grams.
The Lincoln, Memorial Reverse penny (mid 1982 to present) weighs 2.5 grams.
It's not easy to tell the 1982s apart, so to figure out how many cents weigh a pound (or any other amount) you'd have to decide which date range you wanted to use and eliminate all 1982 coins. To help, a pound is 453.6 gm so just divide that by the weight of the penny date that you decided to use.

Is that what you would like or would you like something different.

During their period of issue, they were referred to as a Crown due to them being of the same dimensions as the pre-decimal Crown coin. These coins were discontinued from 1982 but remain legal tender.

Intended as a souvenir or collectible, but occasionally seen in circulation. These coins are now referred to as a Crown due to them being of the same dimensions as the pre-decimal Crown coin.

You are welcome. Sorry for not getting it for you the first time. I did not know you wanted the pound weight. Not the american penney weight.

Hello. Your scale has an autocalibration feature. It should calibrate itself. If it is off, your only option is to replace it. Joe

The scale must be on a hard, level surface. Make sure there is absolutely no dirt on any of the pivot points. Calibrate it with a KNOWN 25 pound weight.

### Mini digital scale displays out2

I just had this problem on set Salter scales (says 3309 on label on back so assume that's model no) which came up OUT2 solidly after hadn't been used for a while.
Looking on WWW this means on other scales they need to be recalibrated. There are only 2 buttons on ths model ON/Zero and 2nd is mode for grams, oz etc. Discovered by trial and error have to hold down the on button and repeatedly click the measure button as it powers up, screen says err2 press on button again and says 5000g, put 5000g weight on scales, press on button again display says CAL press on button and it at first came up with EEEE and failed but next attempt it said PASS and it all worked again. I used 2 x 1.5kg bags flour and 2 x 1Kg bags sugar to make 5kg with bit tipped out of one to make exact and checked on another set scales. So trick appears to be finding how to get your scales in to calibrate mode and what the weight it expects is.
