Why is it that the center of the iron cross is megnetic on authentic war time made medals, what material was it made out of

Well I guess the clue is in the name - 'iron' cross.
However, not all crosses had iron or magnetic cores. There are just as many non magnetic crosses with the core made from brass, copper, tombak or zinc.
Having a magnetic core is not a guide to authenticity. You can find fake crosses with magnetic cores too.
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
hahaah Adrian i think you edited. i ended up repeating half of what you said.
