    Looks great, I have no idea how to distinguish between zinc and aluminum.

    The weight would be a good measure as Zinc is much more dense (heavy) than Aluminium.
    Hardness would also be an indicator, Zinc being much harder/tougher.
    General rules of thumb.

    Cheers

    Any markings? I was lucky to find a '60' stamp on mine which the dealer was unaware of or at least didn't mention.
