I'm sure this is really going to sound stupid to REAL scrappers but I could use some help. Over the years I have tossed hundreds of printer cartridges with these little gold tabs. Recently, someone suggested that they are worth pulling and selling when I get a bunch of them. Yes or no? Big value or big waste of time? Would truly appreciate any help anyone can offer and a thank you in advance to anyone who responds.

On the bare ones they go as clean gold fingers. The ones with a little bump IC go as telco (not sure which now) so I just snip the finger free from them and toss the finger in CGF and the rest of the tiny board in a bag for my peripheral box.

Yes they’re worth selling and MOST office stores with a cartridge program will still accept these cartridges without the contact too. So double bonus!

-- my grades are my own and do not represent an offer from boardsort, nor are they guaranteed. Please keep that in mind.
