Electroplating and burnishing copper plated zinc planchets video

Not sure if I've shared this link before but thought people might find this interesting.

Jarden Zinc Products produces the copper plated zinc planchets for the Lincoln cent. Its is an interesting process that I though everyone might enjoy seeing.
The electroplating process actually starts at the 55 second point in the fairly short video and the burnishing for proof coins follows a little while later.

This video is from their FB page from Dec. 5, 2016
(I was so happy to find a video of the production, I actually left a comment! happydance: )

Thanks Paul.
They had it buried pretty deep on their FB page. Took a lot of searching.
