Two strokes with the same stroke width (1 pt) show up as different sizes.

I have 2 shapes in my Illustrator file that both have the same stroke width (1 pt), but they are appearing as completely different stroke widths.

 

I started a new illustration and needed to start by copying & pasting an element from a different illustration to the new one. I had to scale the pasted graphic down to fit the artboard, so I selected "scale strokes & effects," which worked fine. But now, as I add new elements to the illustration and try to match the strokes and effects of the pasted element, the stroke width is completely messed up. 

 

1pt stroke on the pasted element looks fine. 1pt stroke on the new elements (even when using the eyedropper) are about 4x as thick. What is going on, and how to do I make the stroke widths match?

Is the zoom percentage the same in both documents?
