    Avaya phone boards

    I have 75 avaya business phones, mostly model 5410, I'm assuming they are considered low grade telecom category?? Or peripheral? I know grades vary by buyer..... but just a simple business phone isnt considered telecom high grade I know.

    One phone contains:
    Small green main board
    keypad board (green with brown back)
    Phone display board (black blobs on one side)



    Sorry but cannot load pics currently. Thanks for reading this post, and for your help.

    Without pics it's tough to grade with certainty. That phone board should be on the high end of mid-grade most likely and you should expect between $1.50-2.15/lb for it if that's right. The keypad and display boards it really depends. If the display screen is still attached that's a low grade board for everyone. If you removed the display you can normally mix them in with mid-grade even though the epoxy hinders material recovery from the IC chips underneath them. If the keypad board has gold trace contacts you might find someone to give you more than low grade, if not then low grade.

    Well I was sure I had scrapped some of those in the past but I checked my list and didn't find any. Most (not all) business phone boards were graded mid-grade high at around $2.50 a pound last time I sold. Each phone is different as is each buyer. My buyer seems to have fallen off the face of the earth so I'm looking for a new one.
    Post some picks when you can.

    one buyer on here has a category

    "$2.15 Mid Grade High - Finger Board Trimmed/Devalued, Peripheral Boards, Wireless Router Boards Low End"

    Full article at Scrap Metal Forum: https://www.scrapmetalforum.com/scra...#ixzz6B0PBYOZk

    That they might land into....


    However depending on whats on them they could also land into on of these categories:

    $1.40 Peripheral Boards
    $0.20 Mid Grade Green

    Full article at Scrap Metal Forum: https://www.scrapmetalforum.com/scra...#ixzz6B0Pxj2E1

    So, likly between .20-2.15/lb. My guess would be towards the upper end of that.

    Left two are mid-grade, the right one is low grade.

    No problem. The pic might show up fine on a desktop but I'm using my phone so only saw the three. The small one can go with mid-grade too if you're mixing all mid grades together. Otherwise I'd put it with mid grade-low (somewhere over $.85 but under $1.50 for most buyers I'd guess
