Frogs- Stainless or Chromoly?

Hi,
I've got a set of Frogs I'm selling and am trying to tell if they are
stainless or chromoly. They "look" stainless but have strong magnetic
attraction and I didn't think stainless had the magnetic attraction. Am I
right about the magnet and are they chromoly?

Also, how long has Speedplay made the Frogs in chromoly? I didn't know they
even did till recently- seems like the only place I could find them online
was in England and then I saw a pair in our LBS. It's probably just
something I missed.

Thanks!
Lyle

Thanks. That is way easier than what I was trying to do.

Some stainless steels may become magnetic with cold-working.

ferritics are magnetic - it's the austenitics that are not.
