    Palladium worth more than gold?

    I have been watching Palladium value exceed that of gold for a while. I am admittedly ignorant of why this might be. Does any one understand why this is, and would you please enlighten me? Thanks. I have some Palladium wire I scavenged out of a Hammond organ, so this has my interest.

    I saw a video of a guy that sweeps up all the dust and dirt on highway entrance ramps and processes the metals from catalytic converters. Hes out there all night filling buckets with whatever he can collect between cars rushing by hehe.

    I have seen backpack style vacuums, seems easier than sweeping. Wonder how much precious metals he gets.

    We used this stuff around 30 years ago trying to chase the "Cold Fusion" debacle. I remember labs all over the world trying to achieve room temperature fusion; none succeeded.

    So how much weight in palladium wire can you get out of an old hammond organ? I've been noticing that upsurge in palladium also. Have you noticed the price of rhodium recently?. I've got a 1861 British sterling silver dish with a glass bowl that's got a sterling lid that's plated in rhodium. It looks like a fairly heavy plating that was used to prevent it from tarnishing. It looks remarkable for it's age being they used rhodium to prevent it from tarnishing at being over a150 years old. Flea Market Sterling find today

    They are trying to keep the focus off gold and silver while they collect tons and tons. No reason for palladium to be rising so much with a tanking auto industry and record defaults and repos, (and electric cars). Spot prices are controlled.
    The money metals naturally are pushed lower no matter what everything else is doing. Governemnets around the world are acquiring gold and silver by the boatload right now. Simple price manipulation and theres nothing natural about what's going on. Spot prices can change daily but 5000 years of history tells the real story. Theres nothing honest about the markets right now.

    I got about 4 grams from the main bussbars and I still have the small bussbars from the pedals, but the piece of palladium on each one is only about 3/8" long or slightly less. I used a very sharp wood chisel to get the palladium wires off the keyboard copper bars...they are tacked down every inch or so, but come right off with the chisel held at the correct angle. I also sold the tube amplifier and reverb unit for $75 to a guy who was making a guitar amp.
