When scrapping a dryer, if you have time do not forget to check the bottom of the dryer (on the inside under the drum). The first dryer I ever scrapped I heard something rattling around, so out of curiosity I took the back off and retrieved about $7 in loose change. Since then I have checked every one and generally get a coin or two out of every other one. I hit the motherlode in the last dryer though. Almost $19 in change and a heavy sterling silver chain. I have heard about some folks finding small gold items, but have yet to find one myself. So check the bottoms, you may find more than what you will get for scrapping the dryer itself.
