    Most Imperial Eks are magnetic but not all.
    Some makers (AWS and Otto Schickle as example) used
    other metals, especially late in the war and those produced
    between the wars.

    BTW-- The story of brass Eks being used by the navy is
    pure fantasy.

    Not all iron crosses were marked by the manufacturer. When you think of the millions given out, WW I an WW II, it just didn't happen all the time. Just a far reaching example, the RKs only had a few companies were officially the manufacturer. Private purchases, like the Pour le Merite in WW I, were not marked, except for the silver content. (german law required silver content, but gold was not required to be marked, goes back hundreds of years.) I bought mine from a neighbor whose father ripped it off the neck of an older officer. I knew the father but I didn't know he had it.

    Got off track, most you will find aren't.
