    Gold mechanical keyboard?

    I found an old keyboard, decently old, 15 20 25+ years i think, i. 28 and its something ive never seen so i thi k its pretyy aged, i pop a key mechanics box thing open and bam, what i think is gold plating, amiright? If so i just hit the goldpot right? Having trouble uploading pictures but I believe it's gold plated brass spring deep yellow and if a copper piece with a yellow stripe on its a little brighter not so deep as soon as I can get a picture everything make sense it's a contact it's old why not

    Welcome to the forum. E-waste gold, sadly does not compare to what you could find at the end of a rainbow. There are a lot of great old posts here you can read. Several still have nice pictures too to help you decide what you might have. Good luck.
    Copper, brass, and Leather. 3 of my favorite things.

    Kneaux, you need to post several posts before you can post a photo.
    I'm not sure how many though.
    Post a bit about what scrap sources you have and what you have found out locally, like if there's escrap buyers, what they pay, what your own setup is like & such.
    Believe me, we love photos.
