Could be anyone, with the high scrap value of some catalysts as they contain gold and other expensive metals.

It depends on the quality of the cat, type of cat and condition.

One of my cars is originally supplied with THREE separate cats, yet the car is old enough not to even need one. Sale of the three worn out sections of exhaust with the cats on them paid for a nice new complete custom made stainless steel version.

On the other hand, some are worth nothing at all except for their scrap metal weight.

pug 406 ones are worth 100, BMW e36 325 150 each ect, they have to be standard factory ones though as the aftermarket ones ain't worth zilch.
