    No it doesn't magnetize. (i tried with a real magnet and it magnetized the iron cross) ..I can not see a seam in the edge is it bad that i can not?

    Unless my eyes deceive me, I see rust in the center. That means it is iron...it has to be magnetic. I can see the evidence of a seam on the edges, and it looks fine. The seam is not supposed to be crisp and well defined as the solder would have been filed and buffed down to minimize visibility. Personally, I don't see anything wrong with it.
