The acetone based electrolyte was used for electrodeposition of iron layers on the copper substrate. Two types of surfaces of the deposited layer can be obtained: shiny or black. Magnetic properties of the near-surface regions were studied by the conversion electron Mössbauer spectroscopy. The conversion electron Mössbauer spectra revealed apparent dependence of magnetic moments' arrangement on the deposition time. Those results were compared with the magnetization measurements. Composition of black coating was examined by the X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy measurements.
