 Sometimes they don't know the values of the items they have
and often don't want to take the time to find out. I had a neighbor
that was a scrapper ( mostly stainless steel and food processing machinery ).
He had a bunch of Standard Bus boards that he asked if I wanted
any. I took a couple as I thought many of them had too great a
value as is or for the components.
 Later, I found that he'd sold then by the pound. Each one had
a 80C187 chip on it. Just one of those was worth more than he
got for the entire pile. I wish now that I'd save the lot. He was
an OK guy just trying to pay the rent.
