Size scale set square for photos of coins?

Post by Paulthespade » Thu Jul 28, 2016 8:59 pm

I am looking for the right angled square similar to a set square for placing coins next to for scale. I see so many wonderful coins with these next to them but can't seem to buy one! Are they called something special? I have searched coin websites and flea bay but no joy. I have a paper copy that someone sent me but something plastic to keep would be good. Birthday coming up and everything x;

The Past Horizons stuff is good quality card. You can also get a neutral grey Humbrol cutting mat from model shops, this is gridded and useful as background and for larger finds.
