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.
