The time capsule was adorned with a copper patina. Patina, a usually green film formed naturally on copper and bronze by long exposure or artificially (as by acids) and often valued aesthetically for its color.
The bible at the bottom of the copper box shows signs of deterioration. The time capsule was not moisture tight apparently.
