Thats a silver mylar. Very similar to the one in computer key boards. Boardsort doesn't buy silver mylar. You can sell that on ebay but there's not much money to be made. I sold more than 50 computer key board mylars for $10 including shipping. So not worth even savings them.

Local yard may buy it as silver flat wire or general flat wire. Mine all do.

I did the math a while back and you will need around 200 keyboards to get an ounce of silver. My math was based off of getting a quarter of a gram of silver per pair of mylars. Factor in time plus cost of chemicals and safe disposal of waste materials and determine if refining is worth it to you.

On keyboard mylar the silver is generally integral to the sheet. I believe that may be the type of keypad that the silver discs can easily be separated from the backing. If so, I'd remove them and toss into a film canister or something similar. When it's full and silver goes to $50 an ounce, I'd sell them on Ebay.
