YES, not long ago it was like $3.55 a lb,   so that be $71.     They do have different grades of copper, I don't know the details of that but it is still worth it.

If it's insulated you will get less then if it is stripped.  If you don't want to mess with it just take it in as is.  Still make $20+ on it.

Scrapping for me is part of storage auctions.  Anything that is metal and/or electronic and busted gets taken apart / scrapped as is.
