Well, don't want to discard if good. Cannot figure out how to categorize these pieces. Dell port replicator (PR0x1) has blue/green card. Are all wireless ports gold plated, or brass? Weird piece with gold fingers, pins, and contacts. Little card with black plastic back. LED cards?? Any help much appreciated!!

My vote is gold on those parts which will go with gold connector ends. Small boards will LCD screens are mid grade at best since the weight of the junk screens far exceed the weight of the boards. Everything else is likely going to be graded as peripheral based on similar items asked about in the past.

That unknown1.jpg likely came from a hard drive, looks like the part that connects the board the the arms. I agree with metalmanjason that it goes as a connector end, but I'm not sure if you'll need to peel it off that metal backing.

Unknown 1 is a type of IC chip known as an EPROM. I am sure Boardsort would not want the metal it is stuck to, I am unsure of how much of the plastic ribon film would be acceptable with it.

Edit: The more I look at that pic The more I think BSOD is right and I am wrong. Sorry for causing confusion.

Those connectors are RF connectors and are Gold plated. Since they are RF they will be plated much heavier than normal computer connectors. I would not give those up as regular gold plated connectors.

All peripheral grade except for the LCD screen which is midgrade. (pop the screen of to upgrade it to peripheral).

Those RF connectors are being purchased at $2.50 per pound.
