I've been helping my grandma clean up around her house for a few weeks now. My grandpa past a few years ago and he was the type to buy old stuff at auctions, yard sales, flea markets, and pawn shops. Lots of good junk and bad junk. Grandmas been wanting to clean the place up and sell what she can. She wants me to take the scrap metal to a junk yard. In an old rusted 59 vw beetle I found around 50 railroad spikes on the floor. I was wondering if it was legal or not to sell them for scrap?
