A magnet should settle that easily enough.

A nickel plated steel frame is quite magnetic.

My stainless framed 1858 is also quite magnetic.

A nickel plated brass frame will be ever so slightly magnetic, if detectable at all.

The magnet did, and mine appears to be identical to the one in your upper photo.
