I've heard horror stories (some on this list) about how components 
are removed from boards -- putting the boards in a wood fire or 
holding the board up to a gas burner, then whacking the board on 
something so the parts fly off.  If the reports are true (and I have 
no way of knowing, but the photos in the links above certainly do not 
give the impression that the parts were removed carefully with proper 
desoldering equipment), I'm not sure I'd trust the used parts to be 
in pristine condition any more.

Best regards,
