Pocket guinea balance
A pocket guinea balance by james holgate, 6 arthur street east, london.The brass coin scale springs into weighing position when opened. The scale uses no weights because the beam has on one side a folding weight for a guinea and a half-guinea. A slider shows on a graduation scale (1 to 12) the actual weight of the coin. The mahogany case with the original printed directions of use in the lid and at the bottom, measures 14 x 4 x 2cm, and is in a good overall condition.
