    I found a bunch of change - quarters, dimes etc. in a big Lexmark printer- I think the high school kids thought is was a slot machine and I got the jackpot ! Oh sorry , I missed the resold part...

    Some years back I was loading up mixed tin from a remodeled furniture factory. In addition to other pieces, I loaded a couple dozen machine power drops; tin boxes about 10 feet long. I did not know until I got back to the shop, that each drop had 4 copper bars 1/2"x3/4" x 8' long. Needless to say, that load increased in value rather quickly!
