[qcmzidqp] Chess piece symbols

A collection of chess piece symbols suitable for printing, cutting, pasting, and creating a chess set of counters (similar in style to shogi, rather than traditional carved figurine pieces usually used for OTB chess). The circle is approximately the size of a nickel (5-cent) coin.  Three pennies and a nickel hot glued together.

They seem to print out the correct size from Linux but too large from Mac OS X.

Piece design based on SVG files from Xboard 4.7.3, so carries its GNU GPL 3.0 license.

Photograph below also demonstrates pawns can be promoted to queens by flipping them over. Underpromotion handled the traditional way (some captured piece).
