OT: Scrapper question

A previous neighbor was a scrap metal man.
When he got PC boards, he'd cut the tantalums
and gold fingers. Most of the rest he'd toss.
It may have changed some since then. That was
about 15-20 years ago.
I recall he had a number boards with 80C187s
on them. I tried to explain to him that these
where worth more than a box full of these boards
scrapped for gold and tantalums. He never
figured it out though.
