Would this be low grade and what should I remove?

Wait for lostinlodos on this one, I usually completely strip these boards though.

It's low. I also strip these.

Occasionally you will get lucky and sometimes get a peripheral board out of the metal tuner can, not always though. Will see if I have one and open it to show what's inside tomorrow sometime.

So strip all the little knobs and tabs and whatsits? There's a lot of stuff on there; should it be obvious what should be recycled as what? I know some of it is copper but is the rest just mixed metals or shred? Thanks in advance for your guidance. I do want to learn how to do this the best way.

My what's inside posts show many different boards and you can get a general idea of an order from them, for breaking stuff down.
The aluminium tubes are capacitors and get a low grade aluminium
The two pins inside each al cap are silver, nickel, or nickel plate so if you can pull them loose the pay well.
The tiny ceramic and glass cylinders are resistors and when you have enough you'll get ceramic resistor class for them. $1 per lb +- 15 cents. You'll need a few lbs to get that rate though.
Small ICs (more than four pins per side) boardsort will take as ICs. Come off really easily with a utility knife down one side. Then just rock it gently and the other side will pop loose no cutting.
The rca ports are silver plate or nickel and usually get nickel connector

Just about everything else including the 3 pin "ICs" (resistors, cut the legs off for nickel plate) will get a mid tier copper breakage rate (CBM#2/3)
99% of yards will give you copper recovery or copper shred for those low and midgrade boards populated or blank so pulling components always pays more.
This is an unpopulated board and I'd guess about 50-75 cents striped but the populated ones like power supply boards will give you a few bucks, vs 20-30 cents lowgrade.
So by doing these like your post you can easily get the hang of it for figuring out the more active boards that will give you major returns.
Taking a 1.5lb power board at 15 cents and getting $2.25 in component scrap is what I call good return!

The only difficult part on this board is the rf block. I use my tekton wire snips to rock the heavy mounts loose enough to get my metal snips in underneath and cut the block loose.
The whole thing can go as is CBM 2
