Hello
I just found this site a couple days ago. What a awesome site it is. I'm a pretty new at this E scrape stuff as far as grading each component or board. I am getting my first shipment sorted and ready to go but need a little help on the following pictures. Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi, first thank you all for your advice it has been very helpful. I have been collecting for a couple years waiting to retire and play with scrapping. I have been in the background trying to learn what I can. Maybe I can get my scrap put together and make my 800 mile round trip soon. But right now I am curious about the pics 1352(#2),1353(#6)and 1347(#10) they look to have the gold fingers removed which I would have thought they would be finger cards but it looks like they were telco before and after fingers removed, if so then I need to go thru my finger cards and sort these types out and remove the gold fingers please advise what made them telco Thank you for your time in advance. Also would that mean that modem and ethernet cards would be telco not finger cards and would they be telco without the fingers? Number 3 pic looks to be modem card without the fingers maybe. On the payout rates I see telecom high grade (large boards lots of chips) but no telco boards pricing are these the same or is telco it's own category? Again thank you for your time.

This isn't a knock on anyone. Especially (much thanks!) to mls who has on sight experience!
But contrary to conjecture a single gold finger really can and has (for me) be the make/break point of telco.
When grading a board myself I've over 20 years of experience in CIS/IT in every step from day one fabrication to day omega recycling. Somewhere between 70%-90% of the photos here I've recycled at some point in that timeframe.
Far from saying I know everything I simply start with what it was and then grade out what it is now.
Missing fingers can often be the breaking point between peripheral or a cd/DVD board and telco.
While sound blaster gold and 3D0 blaster cards will get telco regardleuof what you do a V12 or V16 modem or serial controller is a different story all together!
Telco's rate is something of a not here-not there rate.
Boardsort has telco where others have mid high and high lo rates.
Regardless; it's a class of betters; better than all these but not quit the next major grade after so.
Telco is not solely dependable on any one thing.
20 ICs on a polystyrene board is NOT going to get telco but a good many 5.25 inch floppy drive board almost always will. As cd drive controller is cd/DVD but floptical will be a 100% sure telco board
Learnzthe telco class (and any other) is a matter of two things;.
Learning what a board is (intention), what class it is, and what goes into it
Learning what a specific recycler buys it at

Boardsort has been on the top 5 payouts (over all) class for over 3 years.
But in some specific classeuthex remain a bit lower than others and higher on some .

To directly answer your statement a modem later than 1994 will be peripheral or gold finger card every time
Anything older; I'd post.
Again it's not the number of ICs: I've had power supplies from DEC that hade more ICs than a prism ram card that are undeniably peripheral rate and I've had spacers and terminators get telco.
To get telco nothing on it's own can get below $3 (currently) in scrap value ;bare board excluded) a the bare stripped valuzmust (like all classes) exceed the telco rate to GET telco rate

Any you can tell my nights off by the slightly inebriated spelling errors in my posts.
I'm an cis tech; not a spelling teacher. Tee hee
