Ferrous metals are the metals that contain a high portion of iron in them. Ferrous metals do have some value to them. A few examples are listed below.
A good way to test your metal to see what it composed of is to touch a magnet to it. If the magnet sticks to the metal, then it is a type of ferrous metal. If it does not stick then it is a more valuable non-ferrous metal. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
