Yes, but there is the flip side of the gold coin...
Do you (or most others on this list) have the experience to the judge
the value carefully?
Sometimes there can be a lot of gold hidden inside plain jane looking
electronics. Sometimes not.
Also, the gold market is a funny thing, and is very high these days. A
few months ago the Indonesians were so desperate for gold they were
paying well above market value for scrap.
