In Fallout 3, Pre-War Books, Scrap Metal, and Nuka Cola Quantum (among other items) were all far more valuable when turned into specific NPC's, rather than just sold to whichever trader you came across first.

In Fallout: New Vegas, are any of the same items, or any new ones, worth holding onto for a larger payday?

I've made this community wiki so that more people can edit it and we can simply have one definitive answer. In doing so, I've also incorporated answers not only from what I've found via gameplay and The Vault, but also the other answers which are on this question as well.


You can give scrap metal to Jack (Boomers) in return for Boomer reputation.


Raquel (Boomers) wants missiles, stating that they have less than five years worth of missiles for their launchers.
