Place the coin onthe crown (top) of the fret, under the string.

So, check the distance from the bottom edge of the string to the top edge of the fret with each coin.

I apologize if I am walking a well-worn path with this question but I could not find a definitive answer in previous posts. Where exactly is the dime placed at the 1st fret and the nickel at the 7th fret to check string height? On the fingerboard next to the fret bar or on top of the bar?

Thanks and happy new year!
