The Weight of Stamps

Today I went to the post office to mail a letter.  I'd already checked the weight on my home scale (salvaged from the dump) and it was a couple grams over, so I removed one of the four pictures inside.  Still looked like it was going to be close.

The post office scale had it at 25.5 grams, a half-gram over the threshold between ¥110 and ¥190. I pleaded with them that the stamps must weigh half-a-gram.  They said okay, and let it go through for ¥110.
