WHY ALL THESE SHINY CENTS?

    I can not open a cent roll without finding numerous shiny, looking brand new, cents.
    Also I have noticed that a lot of them have... Umm..." streaks " running from
    top to bottom. I have no idea what those streaks are but I was getting the thought that someone is cleaning them or applying something that makes the streaks and the shine. Any thoughts on what is causing this? I sure don't mind finding shiny coins but something ain't right there...

    It's zinc plated in copper. They take on many different looks. Normal stuff.

  4. All I can say is that it's been all downhill ever since the 1982 changeover from copper to copper-plated zinc.
