About $70, dad sold 2 + the beads from a third for about $200, if I got that right.

“So, how much can you sell one for?”

I went to high school with a guy who recycled catalytic converters from junkyards back in the 70’s and early 80’s.

At the time, people were just throwing them away when they went bad or the vehicle was wrecked. He was a good chemist and developed his own processes for extracting the platinum.

I don’t know how much he got per unit, but he was doing very well. Probably not commercially feasible at that time but he made good money at it.

I understand they "wholesale" for around $50 and resold for about $150.
Not sure how much platinum is actually in the units.
