For those of you with calculators checking to see if the point-to-point dimensions given in the review scale up to the correct star size, please be advised that the US Insignia stars are measured by the diameter of the circle they fit inside of rather than point-to-point.

Thank you Woody everyone for your replies. As I always try to state, I do appreciate any and all feedback as it always helps me to write better reviews. Thank you for the information on the measurements Woody. I just gave the measurements for reference size but I appreciate you informing us how to measure them for the actual size in regards to scale.

Thank you again,
Randy
