These 1962 pennies have a transparent enameling glass sifted  in layers and fired with a torch until glossy.  Approximately 4-5 siftings and firings occured in this process.  Prior to 1982 every penny the U.S. Treasury minted was 95% copper, today the predominant metal is zinc.  Sterling silver ear wires with a copper ball.
