Ag19 cluster ions are mass selected and deposited on a Pt(111) surface covered by five monolayers of Kr. Almost monodispersed hexagonal shaped Ag islands are observed after Kr evaporation at 125 K. The identification of the island shape and the exact number of atoms has been successful by decorating the clusters with Kr atoms which can be counted by high resolution scanning tunneling microscopy.
