My guess is $45.

Nice finds though. The last iphone I found was bloating like a beached whale. I cracked it open it was a pile of rust and cracked plastic. Nothing salvageable. Booo. Anyhow, I think I'd take the same action as you. Hopefully you get a few bucks from listing on the bay.

I'll tell her to try if she still has it.

How much do you usually get for a broken iPhone? (I don't know much about phones, but I'm guessing people buy these flooded phones for parts or something like that?)

True. But it requires 20 minutes and $3 of acetylene to harvest. I'll just recycle it before I try to save 0.03g of gold. lol

My wife and I were are "Miami Beach" around 6th Street that day. I even told her that there was this guy named Felix that we had to keep a look out for. Would have been cool to meet you but I did talk to another hunter there who has been detecting since 1965! I don't meet many people who started detecting before I did.
