  1. We claim the ornamental design for a weigh platter or cover for a data reader, as shown and described.

FIG. 1 is a front, top, left perspective view of a weigh platter or cover for a data reader showing the new design, this view being an exploded view showing environment;

FIG. 2 is a front side elevation view thereof;

FIG. 3 is a rear side elevation view thereof;

FIG. 4 is a left side elevation view thereof, the right side elevation view being a mirror image duplicate; and,

FIG. 5 is a top plan view thereof.

The broken lines in FIG. 2 and corresponding broken lines of FIG. 1 are for illustrative purposes only and form no part of the claimed design. The broken lines in the bottom portion of FIG. 1 are for showing environment only and form no part of the claimed design. The bottom view is omitted as forming no part of the claimed design.
