Scrap value of catalytic converters?

Greetings from southern alabama!First off I'm not a import person.I am a chevy person.although I do respect all peoples likes/dislikes and vehicle preferences.

I'm here to ask the xttera experts a question.I bought a totaled 03?xterra some time ago for it's engine.long boring story short and less boring,lol.I still have it's converters and plan on scrapping them.been told import converters are worth more than domestic.don't trust the recycler they tried to screw me in the past on a few.

How much are they worth in scrap?the truck had 70k on it, no rattles,or MIL illuminated.eBay won't let me list them as parts.says"EPA laws,bla,bla," any help would be appreciated,thanks

I got ~$260 for the 4 of mine off of my '03 IIRC. They had a chart up on the wall of pricing and checked the actual core size by putting a rod in the ends to see where it starts. There are a lot of places that don't want to touch them, or pretend they aren't worth anything and try to offer you $5-$10

Similar to above, I had a "pre-cat" (built into the exhaust manifold from a Nissan 4-cyl) before the actual cat that I sold. ~$120 from a local recycler - they also had a chart on the wall. I would think Mirage's number should be a good point for you to start.

Actually,got off work early and stopped by a recycle place(had them in the bed of my S10)they gave me $35 each.I think I got robbed but,I drove further down the road and spent $50 to get my windows tinted and $20 at Beef O'Brady's while i waited(included the tip).so it worked out well I quess Nissans are worth something after all,lol.
