    If you own a junkyard this could be profitable otherwise the scraps are tiny and require precision to collect.

    Late 80's - early 90's was the best years for CPU.
    Thats where the big & easy money is, mostly pink/purple ceramics with Gold.

    Pentium rectangle shaped, Gold capped with bolts out the top of them,
    K5 CPU are "triple Golds" Gold Cap + Underside + the Pins, a bit less than 1/2 gram of Gold in that one.

    I remember that lot. There were some interesting pieces in there. When I saw the K5's I knew they were way too cool to do $5 per unit so I ended up paying $15-$18 on them.
