 i want to know if there was any variation in the material used for minting 5 rupee coins in 2009. I got two coins as shown in picture.. one is surely brass but other i'm no sure about.. can anyone help me out ?

These coins are not rusted/ corroded at all.. all are in mint condition.

@PJ, both are Ni-Br. I've seen both the varieties from circulation. I'm not expert at metal composition but I believe the difference in quality is more to do with varition in manufacturing quality than metal composition and post-production ware and tear. Good observations though.
