Default Watering can, galvanised on outside only?

Sick of all the plastic crap i've watched fade and crack over the years,
when I wanted a watering can I bought a nice shiny metal one.

I was pouring rusty water on my plants the other day and noted that it's
galvanised on the outside, but only the top inch or so on the inside.

So i'm emptying it each use and putting it away somewhere dry, seems
pointless to me galvanising it at all.

Is that right/normal?

don't see how that's possible Hot dip galvanizing you have to immerse the whole thing in a tank

Or you dip the bottom 7/8ths which is water tight and only galvanises
the outside and then turn it over and dip the top 1/8th which is open
and therefore gets galvanised on inside and outside.
