True Weight

An honest merchant uses an honest scale.

Some things stay the same from generation to generation.

If I’m paying for three pounds — I want to receive three pounds.

It doesn’t matter if I’m paying for apples at the modern supermarket or precious sugar at the trading post.

Approximately two centuries prior to an electronic digital scale — an honest merchant would have weighted your small goods against known weights on this design of scale.

Two pounds of nails please.
