    Question about silver colored wires from a tv

    I found my 4th curbside TV when I got done stripping it I noticed that the wires where a silver color. What are they made of and are they worth anything?



    Thanks.

    We purchase laptop computers and many components for greater than scrap value. We offer a shipping reimbursement program.replies

    Cut through them to make sure that you're not just looking at a coating. I've seen some monitors that have used coated copper there.

    Your yard may classify things differently, so I'd take a sample to them to be on the safe side.

    Tinned copper. If left unstripped, it's #2 or #3 insulated, depending on the insulation/copper ratio and how your yard grades it. If it's bare, it's #2 copper.
