US Pennies are zinc, not copper

Response to A penny, I wonder

I believe they were copper prior to WWII, and during WWII they were steel for a few years, but since then they have been made out of zinc. They will probably work just fine as a washer, but if the thought was to create a copper washer, that didn't happen. Still a resourceful idea tho.
