    bust the plastic off, some yards will give you number 2 copper price, others will say its number 3, but either way, at least 2 bucks a pound

    yep. Usually 10 lbs worth of copper, if there's any doubt either before or while you're at the scrapyard, just scrape it with a screwdriver. The nickel plating's pretty thin
