Scrap metal prices are on the rise over the past week. Aluminum dropped 1%. Catalytic converter prices are mostly flat or possibly dropping a bit. Just finished watching Tom with Is crap. Have a good day, everyone!

Silver has been neer 50 an oz before. Its been a long time ago but as the dollar declines silver and gold should go up in value or a t least not decline like the dollar.

A scrap business in the Ukraine should do well.

I don't remember how far back it was but when it droped back down in the low 20s I bought a few thousand in coins. Then naturally it droped a bunch more. I just keep holding it it will never be worth nothing and will go up at some point. But I will keep it when I goes up unless thing are tight. Cash is a poor investment.

When I was shooting trap every weekend the trophies were silver coins spend $150 or more that day to get a 1 oz coin worth $5.60 IF you won. LOL

Scrap has many different grades. Steel is where it is at right now. We are pushing 250.00 a ton. But it has to be sorted with no junk. Freezers, fridges, appliances do not qualify as steal. Appliance or sheet. Is the category. Good steel metal bed frames. Any steel 1/8 inch or thicker. Clean with no attachments. Plastic etc. prepared is even higher. Copper is still good and holding. Brass is the wild metal now. Over 2.00 a pound clean brass (yellow). Bronze is even higher. Silver coated brass is at 1.75 a pound. Still good prices. Due to labor shortages. Take the time to sort your scrap. You will get rewarded well

Darn!! I need to check on price here. We are always behind in price here not enough competition. I did sell a lot at 200$ a ton last year. I have about 2 ton left to get hauled out some needs cutting but will need to wait till snow leaves and not muddy.

Unfortunately the USSR troops took over the major metal foundrys of the Ukraine, they fought very brave trying to get the last troups out of the mills

Silver went to $52 in the Jimmy Carter days.
