Spoiler forDoes this have to do with the deck being brought back into its original order (assuming perfect shuffling) after so many shuffles? If you were skilled enough to "follow" a card and you knew where it started, you would have a pretty good chance of finding it.Spoiler forNegative..the cards randomizes well. The no. of shuffling is not controlled..If it is a new deck from a wrapped box (where the suits are supposed to be in order - A-K (Hearts) , A-K(Diamonds) ,A-K(Spades),A-K(Clubs), Jokers removed) it is much easier to follow.
But the deck in OP is not brand new so you are skilled enough ..
1. Memorize the initial positions of individual cards. (When exposing the cards)
2. Cut the deck 26-26 to shuffle one right over one left card all the time.
3. Follow the resulting new position of individual cards every shuffle.
4. Spread the deck of known positions of individual cards and watch
which card was drawn. (not even a talent)
It is the Queen of Diamond!

Spoiler for@plasmid : Thanks for the solution..That is pure lateral thought with dexterity!The scale reads the weight 2 times only with the following assumptions:1. the scale has on off button2. the spinning coins do not collide with each other3. the coins do not fall off or bumps on tray edge4. the the tray has enough flat surface5. the coins that stop spinning did not remain on its edge6. the coin stop spinning at the same time with another coin7. the spinning (left/right) magnetized coin on existing magneticfield around the scale has no effect on its weight?..with uncertainty but it might work.Hint : The 3 weighing solution is very easy..
