I'm pretty sure I bought the same one (light blue box?). They claim that it is 500 grams but when I weighed mine it showed 471 on my kitchen scale.
Now that we have a 2nd opinion and that it is 470, you can add US 4 quarters and 3 US pennies and be at 500.18 grams.
+ 5.670 * 4 (a quarter is 5.670)
+ 2.5 * 3 (a penny is 2.5)
Since most scales used for espresso use a 500-gram weight for calibration, you now have a freebie calibration weight.
